In-situ oil sands projects

Oil sands, tar sands, crude bitumen, or more technically bituminous sands, are a type of In Canada, oil sands production in general, and in-situ extraction, in particular, are the largest contributors to the By 2013 there were nine oil sands mining projects in the Athabasca oil sands deposit: Suncor Energy Inc. (Suncor),  

2 May 2017 For in situ oil sands extraction projects, bitumen production makes up the majority of energy output. Electricity exported, another kind of energy  17 Jan 2008 demonstrate mining of and in-situ production from U.S. oil sand deposits. billion dollars for oil sands, with some projects already operating,  1 Aug 2017 SAGD projects that in 2014 required a WTI price of $80–90 per barrel to be profitable are being revamped, and now might need only $55–65. In-situ extraction has a much smaller footprint than oil sands mining, uses less water and does not produce a tailings stream. Only 20% of Alberta's bitumen reserves are close enough to the surface to be mined. The remainder can only be feasibly extracted in-situ (or in place) using steam. projects / bitumen production / in-situ notes: 1 barrels of bitumen per calendar day 2 commercial sagd and css thermal in-situ facilities only 3 includes all oil sands in-situ operations, including thermal, primary and eor How in situ oil sands companies used water overall and; How individual in situ projects used water. In situ oil sands projects use water in the form of steam and require more water per barrel of oil equivalent (BOE) during the first few years of their lifecycle. These projects recover oil by injecting steam into reservoirs so that bitumen viscosity is reduced to a point where it can flow. During the heating process, the steam injected typically stays in the reservoir for a few years before Cenovus is by far the largest in-situ producer in the oil sands, averaging about 355,000 bbl/day in 2019 (including Foster Creek), well ahead of the province's #2 and #3 in-situ producers, Suncor and Canadian Natural Resources (CNRL).

Aspen would produce up to 150000 barrels of  

In its annual report for 2014/15, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) said it regulated 50 thermal in-situ projects and nine oil sands mines. Although ExxonMobil

Of these projects, one is a mining operation – Shell's Athabasca Oil. Sands Project (AOSP). The remaining four are energy intensive in situ projects – Shell's Orion  We are a leading in-situ oil sands producer, putting safety and sustainability first. The Hangingstone Oil Sands Project is a joint venture between JACOS  16 Nov 2019 unwilling to make large investments in projects with long timelines. the key technology for in situ oilsands production and creation of the  2 May 2017 For in situ oil sands extraction projects, bitumen production makes up the majority of energy output.

Cenovus is by far the largest in-situ producer in the oil sands, averaging about 355,000 bbl/day in 2019 (including Foster Creek), well ahead of the province's #2 and #3 in-situ producers, Suncor and Canadian Natural Resources (CNRL).

various production types of in situ, including Cold Flow, Cyclic Steam AMEC is working with the clients on Oil Sands mega-projects to provide solutions to. Independent of the extraction method utilized – surface mining or in-situ – companies proposing a development go through similar project approval processes,  There are two different methods of producing oil from oilsands: open-pit mining and in situ (latin, meaning “in place”) technology. Bitumen close to the surface is   Cenovus's other in-situ project in Canada's oil sands produces near capacity every month (between 150,000 up to 180,000 barrels of oil a day). The oil at Foster 

This assessment considers the impacts and performance of in situ oil sands projects at the project level. Given the overall pace and scale of oil sands development  mining projects in Alberta. 1.2 In situ. The majority of oil sands deposits ( approximately 97 per cent) are too deep to be mined and are exploited using in- situ  Nonetheless, production of bitumen from in situ projects is already substantial and may surpass that of mining in the future as research develops new methods and  CNOOC International has oil sands, gas and steam projects in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada at Long Lake. Also involved in Hangingstone. 18 Dec 2018 While they certainly do represent the future of the oilsands — in-situ projects have already outpaced mining production and are set to increase  Dover commercial oil sands project development details. "DCP will be an in-situ- thermal recovery project covering about 49,500ha within the territories of Dover  The main thermal in-situ method is called steam assisted gravity drainage The key parameter of a SAGD project is the steam-to-oil ratio (SOR) which varies.
