Trimeteor Oil and Gas Corporation (“Trimeteor”), headquartered in Las Vegas, NV, having recognized this reality, set their sights on solving for the next generation of Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery (“TEOR”) using anon-disruptive, sustainable technology that provides economic and environmental advantages such as:
• Reduction in Water Consumption - 75-90 percent
• Reduction in Power Consumption - up to 50 percent
• Increase of 2x the Thermal Energy
• Increase of 3-5x Over Current Production Methods
Over 40 percent of the world’s oil is classified as heavy oil with proven reserves estimated at 8 trillion barrels globally. “We are committed to providing a technological solution to the obstacles encountered in the extraction of heavy oil and revitalizing marginal and stripper wells. The play for more effective production of ‘technically un-recoverable oil’ is an ongoing challenge awaiting better technology,” states Richard Graibus, CEO.
High-pressure conventional steam generators producing less than 100 percent quality steam thermodynamically limit the amount of latent heat produced. Steam dryness has a direct effect on the total amount of transferable energy (represented usually as latent heat) contained within the steam, affecting heating efficiency. The Enhanced QUAD-S™ generates >100 percent quality, low-pressure, superheated steam, hence a higher enthalpy of evaporation.
Trimeteor’s patented superheated steam (up to 1200F) technology is delivered down the production well which allows for contemporaneous steaming and pumping.

Conventional steam flood achieves the thermal energy needed by increasing the “rate of injection” using a significant magnitude of water – the focus is on quantity, not quality. Conservation of water in some countries is a pressing environmental issue. Trimeteor’s solution was to develop a technology that does not demand a sizeable injection rate to produce and deliver the “quality” BTUs (latent heat) necessary to impact oil production. This is accomplished by generating superheated steam at a temperature/pressure that far exceeds the specific volume and enthalpy of saturated steam at the same pressure.
With a decade of design, development and testing this technology, Trimeteor’s future business strategies will be focused on the leasing of their technology to producers of heavy oil and marginal/ stripper wells, revitalization of U.S. depleted fields to enhance value, as well as expressed interests from other countries where existing TEOR has failed to stimulate production. Additionally, Trimeteor offers a unique opportunity to large oil service companies to gain a competitive advantage utilizing the Enhanced QUAD-S™ in the remediation of paraffinitic wells without the use of hot oils or solvents in the process and reducing the time necessary to restore the well to full production.
