Construction of Acceleware’s commercial scale RF XL pilot was started in January, 2021. The pilot will validate Acceleware’s all-electric RF XL clean heating technology at Broadview Energy’s Marwayne asset, which is located in the Alberta oil sands designated area. Though the pilot test is greenfield, RF XL can also be adopted into brownfield projects, leveraging existing processing infrastructure to increase throughput volumes without the expansion of capital intensive water treatment and steam generation equipment.

AKITA 29 drilled in Marwayne in August 2021, with Rig 34 competing the drilling portion of the project in October 2021.
