East Edam and Vawn SAGD Projects

The Edam East Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) Project is a thermal heavy oil project located southeast of the City of Lloydminster.


The project was comprised of a Central Processing Facility (CPF), well pads and gathering/distributing pipelines for emulsion and steam, casing gas and fuel gas.

The CFP included water treatment, steam generation, emulsion processing and produced water disposal. Sales oil will be delivered to the Husky Midstream Lease Automatic Custody Transfer (LACT) facility, where it will then be delivered via a Husky Midstream sales pipeline. The facility is being designed as a commercial facility with an anticipated plant life of 20 to 25 years. The commercial project comprised two SAGD well pads, each with six new well pairs plus two well pairs in production from the pilot facility.

  • Due to WSP’s templating capabilities, we were able to utilize designs and research from Edam East to template Vawn. This resulted in significant cost and time savings for Husky.
  • The nominal oil production rate is 10,000 barrels per day with an expected steam to oil ratio of approximately 3.0.
