Devon's Jackfish projects flow 51,000 b/d of bitumen

By OGJ editors

Devon Energy Corp., Oklahoma City, said production from its Jackfish 1 and 2 thermal projects in the southern Athabasca oil sands region of Alberta reached 51,000 b/d of bitumen in the second quarter, 63% above the year-earlier average (OGJ Online, Dec. 6, 2011).

The company said construction is about 40% at the Jackfish 3 project, where production is to begin late in 2014. Devon’s 100%-held Jackfish projects, 10 miles southeast of Conklin, Alta., use steam-assisted gravity drainage with saline water. Each phase is designed to produce 35,000 b/d.

Devon in June filed applications for the first phase of its Pike SAGD project on land adjacent to the Jackfish acreage. Targeted production is 105,000 b/d. Devon and BP Canada Energy hold 50% interests in Pike.
