Jackfish Thermal Heavy Oil Project

Summary Information

  • Operator: Devon
  • Country: Canada
  • Location: Conklin, Alberta
  • Production start: 2007
  • Partners: Devon 100%
  • Type: Oil
  • Estimated Reserves: 300 Million per Phase
  • Production Volume: 35,000 bpd per phase

Description

  • The Jackfish Project uses Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) Technology
  • The combined fluids from the well pads is separated into bitumen, gas and water.
  • Bitumen flows to a pipeline transportation system. The gas is combined with natural fuel gas and burned in the steam generators.
  • The water is transferred to the Water De-oiling System for further treatment.
  • The project is being developed in 3 phases, each with production capacity of 35,000 bpd
