  9. 9. heat conduction coefficient is only 0.007 W/m ℃. It can reduce heat loss in wellbore and increase steam quality Formation Compensation pipe Thermal packer Vacuum insulation tubing 2.3 Main mature technologies for CSS Vacuum insulation tubing 40-60% 0.007 Vacuum insulation tubing 20-40% 0.07 Conventional insulation tubing Steam quality at bottom of wellbore ( 75%@well head ) Thermal conductivity (W/m.℃) Type
  10. 10. Outer tube Inner pipe Seal ring Gland 2.3 Main mature technologies for CSS During the period of steam injection ,the thermal sensitive packer is set down, the insulated tubing will extend due to high temperature, the compensation pipe is used to compensate the extended length of steam injection string .so that the insulation tubing can not get bending Compensation pipe
