In situ oil production

In Situ refers to methods of oil sands production that use drilling and steam to produce bitumen. The most common in situ method is called Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD). What is In Situ? There are two different methods of producing oil from oilsands: open-pit mining and in situ (latin, meaning “in place”) technology. Bitumen close to the surface is mined. Bitumen deep within the ground is produced in situ using specialized extraction techniques.

However, bitumen can only be extracted in-situ if the oil sands deposit is deep below the surface. Most in-situ deposits lie at least 200 meters below grade. In Situ refers to methods of oil sands production that use drilling and steam to produce bitumen. The most common in situ method is called Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD). There are two main thermal in situ oil sands technologies: steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD). cyclic steam stimulation (CSS). In Situ Methods used in the Oil Sands In situ methods are used to recover bitumen that lies too deep beneath the surface for mining (about 80% of the oil sands in Alberta). The success of in situ methods depends on the resolution of two major issues: 1) reducing the viscosity of bitumen so that it will flow, and 2) recovering the bitumen from deep within the earth (OSDC 2008c). In Situ refers to methods of oil sands production that use drilling and steam to produce bitumen. The most common in situ method is called Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD).

Orellana  This accounts for 52 percent of Alberta's total crude bitumen production. By 2022 in-situ production is expected to reach 2.2 million barrels per day [1]. SAGD is a  In 2010, surface mines produced 356.99 million barrels of crude oil, while in situ production (the hot water wells) yielded 189.41 million barrels of oil. Since then 

Most in situ bitumen and heavy oil production comes from deposits buried more than 350-600 m below the surface. Steam, solvents or thermal energy make the  bons and produce methane and enriched heavy hydrocarbons. This in situ biodegradation increases oil density, acidity, viscosity and sulfur content.
