SAGD & Heavy Oil Projects

WSP has extensive experience in SAGD technology, in-situ and cyclical steam facilities, as well as diluent blending, recovery, storage and industry’s first commercial Solvent Aided Process (SAP).


Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) and heavy oil projects are unique in that they are multi-year, multi-phased and capital intensive.  Engineering projects of this scale demand robust, comprehensive project controls, detailed work breakdown structures and a procurement team optimally positioned to manage the costs of engineering, equipment, construction and fabrication. 

WSP’s SAGD and heavy oil project experience ranges from facilities that produce 10,000 barrels per day to 40,000 barrels per day and range in value from $250 million to $1.2 billion.  We are conversant with the latest SAGD technologies, and recently engineered the first commercial SAP, Solvent Aided Process, facility in Canada.

WSP also offers SAGD and heavy oil clients’ extensive experience in facility templating, optimizing functionality of equipment, streamlining building requirements and removing redundancies.
