In Situ Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) and Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS), Thermal Projects

Canada has one of the largest deposits of bitumen globally, and to take responsible advantage of this natural resource, the engineering of sophisticated facilities is required. Orion Projects can establish these sophisticated facilities with consistent quality, safety, schedule and costs at or below industry benchmarks. This is achieved through progressive and disciplined engineering and applying value improvement practices with skillfulness and time sensitivity.

Orion Projects can assist in all aspects of Project Management, including, but not limited to:


  • 10,000 to 60,000 Barrel Per Day (BPD) Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD)
  • 10,000 to 100,000 BPD Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS)

Conceptual Design

  • 10,000 to 60,000 BPD SAGD

Front End Engineering Design (FEED)

  • 10,000 to 60,000 BPD SAGD

Fabrication and Construction

  • Enhancement technology projects and pilots
  • SAGD ceramic membranes
  • SAGD operations support
