Technology at Cenovus

We’re working hard to turn new ideas into opportunities. We’re always looking for ways to either improve existing technology or pursue new technology in an effort to enhance the recovery techniques we use to access oil and natural gas. One of our biggest goals is to improve technologies that increase production while using the smallest amount of water, natural gas, electricity and land. This will reduce our carbon footprint and allow us to produce oil in a more energy efficient way.
