Christina Lake oil sands project

Located about 120 kilometres south of Fort McMurray, our Christina Lake project uses steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) to drill wells, inject steam at a low-pressure and pump oil to the surface.

The oil Cenovus produces from the oil sands is located deep underground and is extremely thick. To access the oil Cenovus drills wells approximately 375 metres deep, then injects steam at a low-pressure to soften the oil so it will separate from the sand. This process is called steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).

Cenovus uses drilling rigs to develop well pads that will access nearly 13 times more resource underground than the area that’s disturbed on the surface. To access the oil, rigs will drill wells approximately 375 metres deep, then inject steam at a low-pressure to soften the oil so it will separate from the sand. This process is called steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).

Christina Lake well pad

A typical well pad can access about 185 acres of resource underground. We drill and use steam to melt the oil so it can flow through the sand and be pumped to the surface. This process is called steam-assisted gravity drainage, or SAGD.

The oil we produce from the oil sands is located deep underground and is extremely thick. To access the oil we drill 800 – 1,200 metres deep, then inject steam at a low-pressure to soften the oil so it will separate from the sand. This process is called steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).

Foster Creek well pad

A typical well pad can access about 48 hectares of resource underground, which is nearly seven times more than the area that’s disturbed on the surface. To access the oil Cenovus drills wells approximately 450 metres deep, then injects steam at a low-pressure to soften the oil so it will separate from the sand. This process is called steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).
