In situ oil sands production

In Situ In Situ refers to methods of oil sands production that use drilling and steam to produce bitumen. The most common in situ method is called Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD).

Except for a fraction of the extra-heavy oil or bitumen which can be extracted by conventional oil well technology, oil sands must be produced by strip mining or the oil made to flow into wells using sophisticated in-situ techniques. These methods usually use more water and require larger amounts of energy than conventional oil extraction. There are two main thermal in situ oil sands technologies: steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD). cyclic steam stimulation (CSS).

In Situ Approximately 80% of Canada's oil sands are too deep to mine and must be tapped using in situ production, which is similar to conventional oil production. Increased in situ production is a key part of Suncor's plans to increase bitumen supply while reducing costs and our impact on the environment. Canadian Natural holds some of the best thermal in situ oil sands assets in Canada, providing tremendous value and growth potential. Our thermal assets are located in two of the major oil sands deposits in Western Canada – the Athabasca and the Cold Lake deposits. Canadian Natural's oil sands deposits are in the form of bitumen, Alberta's oil sands has the third largest oil reserves in the world, after Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. Alberta's oil sands’ proven reserves equal about 165.4 billion barrels (bbl). Crude bitumen production (mined and in situ) totalled about 2.8 million barrels per day (bbl/d) in 2017.

Water use intensity is twice as high for the average oil sands mine as for in situ production. In situ production uses either fresh or saline water, or a combination of the two. Oil sands projects are major emitters of air pollutants

4 Nov 2014 Oil sands -- tar sands or bituminous sands -- are made up of sand, According to the Alberta Energy website, Alberta's oil sands have proven reserves of (SAGD ) and other in-situ techniques to extract and separate the oil. 20 Mar 2014 The Canadian oil sands (or tar sands) are a large area of petroleum Over half of Canada's oil production currently comes from the oil sands (about 1.8 For areas where the bitumen layer is deeper, in situ drilling is used. 2 May 2014 It is no secret that to produce any oil from an oil sands project, you need In situ projects use a lot of water at start-up before production really  An in-situ processing plant is generally much smaller and simpler than an oil sands mining facility. However, bitumen can only be extracted in-situ if the oil sands deposit is deep below the surface. Most in-situ deposits lie at least 200 meters below grade. 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).

1 Aug 2017 mined at the surface or produced from the subsurface (called 'in-situ'), oil sands production is deemed to be manufacturing. Most of the effort 

Together, they produced nearly 125,000 barrels of bitumen per day, or about 7.5 % of Canadian oil production. In 2012, Alberta's in situ production surpassed its  19 Feb 2016 In-situ extraction methods are used to recover bitumen that lies too Currently, 80% of oil sands reserves are accessible via in-situ techniques. 22 May 2018 Oil sands are found in parts of Canada, Venezuela, Kazakhstan, and Russia and produce a thick form of crude oil which can be extracted from  “Oil sands production is projected to make up about two thirds of Canadian oil production by 2010.” In December 2002, the Oil & Gas Journal reported that, holding  8 Dec 2017 Five years ago, in situ oilsands production exceeded mining production for the first time – and it has continued to grow

In-situ Production. In-situ extraction methods are used to recover bitumen that lies too deep beneath the surface for mining (greater than 75 metres underground). Currently, 80% of oil sands reserves are accessible via in-situ techniques. Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) is currently the most widely used in-situ recovery method.
