TECHNICAL Oil Sands Magazine

About 80% of Alberta's bitumen reserves are too deep to be mined and must be extracted in-place (or in-situ) using steam.Bitumen is heated and pumped out of the ground, leaving most of the solids behind. In-situ extraction has a much smaller footprint than oil sands mining, uses less water, and does not produce a tailings stream.

Mining for Bitumen Oil Sands Magazine

Jun 30, 2016 Mined oil sands normally contains from 7 to 13% bitumen by weight. The oil sands is trucked to the Ore Preparation Plant using large heavy haulers. A typical truck load is about 350 to 400 tonnes. Each truck dumps the oil sands load into hopper, feeding into a crusher or sizer. Oil sands mining operations run 24/7.

Oil Sands Magazine

There are two ways to extract bitumen from the oil sands: either mine the deposit and gravity separate the bitumen, or extract the bitumen in-place (in-situ) using steam. Learn more about how oil sands deposits are developed, from the ground to your gas tank, and beyond.

Surface Mining Techniques used in the Oil Sands Oil

Oil sands mining operations are some of the largest mines in the world. Although open-pit oil sands mines have a lot in common with traditional hard-rock mines (such as gold or copper), oil sands operators have some unique challenges due to the softness of the deposit. Learn more about surface mining techniques used in the oil sands.

Water Management in Oil Sands Mining Facilities Oil

Oil sands mining facilities are fairly water intensive. The relatively dry oil sands deposit requires large volumes of water to produce an oil sands slurry that can be pumped and gravity separated throughout the process plant. The oil sands to water ratio is typically about 1-to-1 (or 50% water in t

Aug 06, 2020 Oil sands are a combination of sand, clay and water that contain a heavy crude oil variant called bitumen. 1 But, this complex hydrocarbon is almost solid at room temperature and does not flow without extensive processing. 2 Subsequently, there are two ways to extract the bitumen: mining or in situ. 3 Both are complex, energy-intensive and expensive processes. 3 As a result, oil sands
