Title
(EN) SYSTEM FOR HEATING A HYDROCARBON RESOURCE IN A SUBTERRANEAN FORMATION INCLUDING A TRANSFORMER AND RELATED METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈME DE CHAUFFAGE, COMPRENANT UN TRANSFORMATEUR, D'UNE SOURCE D'HYDROCARBURES SITUÉE AU SEIN D'UNE FORMATION SOUTERRAINE ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract
(EN)
A system for heating a hydrocarbon resource in a subterranean formation having a wellbore extending therein is provided. The system includes a radio frequency (RF) source, an RF antenna to be positioned within the wellbore, and a transformer to be positioned in the wellbore and configured to couple the RF source to the RF antenna so that the RF antenna supplies RF power to the hydrocarbon resource in the subterranean formation.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système de chauffage d'une source d'hydrocarbures située au sein d'une formation souterraine percée d'un puits de forage. Ledit système comprend une source radiofréquence (RF), une antenne RF destinée à être installée dans le puits de forage et un transformateur également destiné à être installé dans le puits de forage et conçu pour assurer le couplage de la source RF et de l'antenne RF, de façon à ce que l'antenne RF alimente en énergie RF la source d'hydrocarbures située au sein de la formation souterraine.
