Canadian Oil Sands

Canadian Oil Sands is a big business with huge potential. Within the oil sands sector, in situ steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) is oil production with many process plant characteristics. Optimizing these operations requires an understanding of reservoir and well management, steam generation, water handling and treatment, chemical management, and diluent blending. It is important that new investments demonstrate operational results—and there is a big opportunity for delivering greater production at lower cost faster through business excellence. Furthermore, the Canadian Oil Sands are a long term play, so it is critical to develop the culture and capability for ongoing Business Excellence, particularly in a growth area constantly challenged with attracting and retaining sufficient talent. Evolve has a very well established track record of helping in situ SAGD producers lay the foundation for future growth while supporting the delivery of accelerated production, safety and cost performance in the near term.

"The program was a great success but what's really great is that not only have changes stuck since the Evolve team left, but we're carrying on making more changes and more improvements."
