MEG Energy Corp. Selects GE Evaporation Technology to Maximize Water Reuse

 MEG Energy Corp. Selects GE Evaporation Technology to Maximize Water Reuse        --  GE to Design and Supply Evaporator Systems for MEG Energy's         Christina Lake Project     --  GE's Evaporative Technology is Expected to Help MEG Energy         Conserve Water and Reduce Operational Costs  TREVOSE, PA, March 25, 2014 /CNW/ - GE (NYSE: GE) reports that MEG Energy  Corp. has selected its evaporation technology for Phases 2B and 3A of the  Christina Lake Project, located in Northern Alberta, Canada. GE's evaporators  will be used to recycle a significant portion of the steam generator blowdown  for reuse as boiler feedwater.  The Christina Lake project uses both cogeneration and once-through steam  generators (OTSGs) to drive the steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) process  for the production of bitumen, which is a heavy crude oil produced from oil  sands. MEG Energy will use GE evaporators to treat its OTSG blowdown and  recycle it as boiler feedwater as opposed to disposing of it by deep well  injection.  "We've witnessed industry trends of SAGD projects either installing new  systems with OTSG evaporators or retrofitting existing units. As projects in  Alberta's oil sands increase, more companies are turning to GE's evaporative  technologies to address the critical issue of how to handle produced water,"  said Bill Heins, general manager, thermal systems--water and process  technologies for GE Power & Water.  GE will supply fifth generation, fully modularized evaporator systems, which  are designed to achieve the lowest possible project costs. These advanced,  module designs incorporate years of experience and optimizations resulting  from numerous modularized evaporator projects designed and supplied by GE to  clients in the Canadian oil sands.
