Technology at Cenovus

Technology at Cenovus

Technology is essential to the Canadian oil and natural gas industry. At Cenovus, we’re focused on continuously improving existing technologies and advancing new ones to help maximize our oil and natural gas production and reduce our costs and environmental impacts, including our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity. Further, by collaborating with our peers and other external partners, we have the potential to find game-changing environmental solutions that have the potential to be applied not only to our business, but to other industries in Canada and around the world.

Steam-assisted gravity drainage technology

Steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD)

Find out how SAGD helps us reach oil sands reservoirs half a kilometre underground with a relatively small environmental footprint.



We’re working with other oil and natural gas companies to innovate and develop new technologies to address our biggest environmental challenges.
