SAGD Oil Sands Online:

Produced Water De-Oiling Course

Process Education
for Canadian Oil & Gas Workers

Anyone thinking of working in western Canada’s Oil Sands regions should look at Contendo’s SAGD Oil Sands Online Oil & Gas Process Education.

Based on Process Operation

Contendo’s SAGD Oil Sands Online is the only fully animated presentation of SAGD process construction & operation available. Simply put, no one else does what Contendo has been doing for over a decade; turning process drawings into process actions. 

Contendo’s SAGD Oil Sands Online curriculum was written by experienced industry engineers & technicians to give students a great base of knowledge to work in Oil & Gas generally, and SAGD Oil Sands production specifically.

Course Overview | SAGD Oil Sands Online:
Produced Water De-Oiling Course
(20 Learning Modules)

SAGD operations produce a bitumen-water emulsion to the surface, which is separated into
oil, gas, & oily water streams. 

The oily water is called “Produced Water” (PW). It is collected for de-oiling and softening in order to re-use it as Boiler Feed Water. Produced Water must have ALL oil droplets removed so it can be reused for steam generation.

SAGD Oil Sands Online prepares the student for work in the oil industry by providing a comprehensive understanding of SAGD produced water de-oiling operations. We describe why and how produced water is treated to produce quality De-Oiled Water. 

SAGD Oil Sands Online uses animation to take you inside vessels and equipment to see each process and flow stream, making the training valuable to all tradespersons, supervisors, and managers interested in SAGD PW de-oiling operations. It provides the student with a comprehensive understanding of SAGD Produced Water processing operations.

Universally accessible with an internet connection, 
SAGD Oil Sands Online: Produced Water De-oiling 
is presented in a sleek, 
mobile-responsive platform so students can learn anywhere, anytime.

NSCC Marconi Campus (Sydney, Nova Scotia) has used Contendo’s SAGD Oil Sands Online since April 2013 as a component of the Process Operations – 4th Class Power Engineering program. The program serves to develop an understanding of processing equipment and knowledge of plant safety to prepare for a career as a field operator, process operator and/or plant operator. SAGD Oil Sands Online has become an important tool for providing students with an additional understanding of the operation of the Training Lab Process Units, including the process safety systems & distributed control system.

Keyano College (Fort McMurray, Alberta) offers a Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) Processing Certificate that includes Contendo’s SAGD Oil Sands Online as part of its Curriculum. Written by industry experts, the Contendo process operation models are shown with accurate visualizations in animated chapters. SAGD Oil Sands Online is offered through Keyano’s Continuing Education program in 4 parts (Well Pads, Bitumen Processing, Produced Water De-Oiling, and Water Treatment). Once completed, it is accepted as 37 credit hours toward the college diploma.
