Eavor-Lite™

Witness the demonstration of the world’s first truly scalable form of clean baseload power

Eavor-Lite™ Demonstration Facility

The Derek Riddell Eavor-Lite™ Demonstration Facility is a full-scale prototype of the Eavor technology suite. The facility site is located near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. Drilling and construction began in August of 2019. Eavor-Lite™ consists of two vertical wells, joined by two multilateral legs at 2.4km depth, connected by a pipeline at surface. The rationale for this design, which is not intended to be commercially viable, is to build a facility that proves and demonstrates all the critical elements of Eavor’s technologies at the lowest cost. This demonstration is designed to achieve the most efficient path to acceptance and commercialization of the technology by facility developers and commercial financiers.

The Eavor-Lite™ Demonstration is designed to achieve the following three technical objectives:

  • Drill and intersect a multi-lateral Eavor-LoopTM with 2 lateral wellbores from each vertical wellbore
    • Intersect wellbores/mechanically confirm intersect
  • Seal lateral openhole wellbores while drilling
    • Pressure test
    • Maintain circulation rate with negligible leak rate
    • Maintain low solids production
  • Validate thermodynamic performance and demonstrate thermosiphon effect
    • Match or exceed thermodynamic model performance
    • Demonstrate thermosiphon control and operation
    • Achieve >90% uptime
