SAGD and Heavy Oil Development

Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) and Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS) SAGD/CSS is an unconventional resource development that is widely used to extract bitumen from underground oil sands deposits. These methods involve injecting steam into sub-surface oil sands deposits to heat the bitumen locked in the sand, thereby lowering the viscosity allowing it to flow and to be extracted. In […]
