Extractive Technologies

Our Extractive Technologies research and development (R&D) focuses on improving the extraction of bitumen from surface-mined oil sand ore and in-situ (subsurface) reservoirs.

Our area of focus

CanmetENERGY Devon’s surface mining R&D activities focus upon ore and froth treatment, and non-aqueous bitumen extraction by:

  • Creating strategies and processes to enhance hydrocarbon recovery
  • Reducing the environmental impacts of bitumen froth treatment
  • Developing non-aqueous bitumen extraction technologies

CanmetENERGY Devon’s in-situ extraction R&D activities focus upon steam-assisted gravity drainage, solvent and foam-assisted bitumen extraction. We seek to gain:

  • Understanding to develop strategies and technologies to improve recovery processes while reducing environmental impacts during in-situ bitumen extraction

Extractive Technologies projects at CanmetENERGY Devon

Our current suite of R&D projects aims to improve extraction of bitumen from surface-mined ore and in-situ bitumen extraction processes.
