Improving Safety, Environmental Protection and Operating Efficiency
The innovations incorporated into the Clearwater Project include a low-pressure SAGD operating design, vapour recovery, exhaust condensation and an expected near zero operating use of potable water. Each of these features is backed either by a redundant second system, by a monitoring system to make sure it’s working at all times, or both.
In addition to the key innovations described in the linked pages above, further innovations are described in the following pages. Please also check out the accompanying pages on Safe Operations, Environment and Partnering.
