Did you know 80% of Canada’s oil sands resource will be developed using drilling techniques such as SAGD? Watch this video to learn how Devon uses steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) to recover oil from the oil sands.

The Devon SAGD process video was developed to be used as an educational tool for our stakeholders, including family and friends. This 17 minute, character-based animation shows viewers how Devon extracts oil form the oil sands using steam assisted gravity drainage at our Thermal operations in Northern Alberta.

It’s important for everyone to understand what SAGD is –after all, 80% of Canada’s oil sands resource will be developed using drilling techniques such as SAGD.

After you’ve watched it, share this video with your family and friends to help them understand what SAGD is and how at Devon, we are always investigating new ways to improve our processes and technologies, including exploring the use of solvents along with steam to increase efficiency, lower our steam oil ration (SOR) and accelerate production.
