Devon is proposing a new in situ oil sands project in the Southern Athabasca Oil Sands region. The Project is a 50/50 joint venture with BP Canada Energy Group ULC and would be operated by Devon. To recover bitumen resources from the McMurray formation, steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) technology and diluent co-injection and cogeneration would be employed. The Project includes a central processing facility (CPF), well pads, source water and disposal well sites, pipelines, roads and power lines. The Project is expected to produce up to 70,000 barrels per day (bpd) of bitumen.
The Project Area is approximately 40 km southeast of Conklin, AB, located in Townships 73 & 74, Ranges 4 to 6, west of the 4th Meridian, in Lac La Biche County.
