SAGD Oil Sands Online:
Produced Water De-Oiling Course
for Canadian Oil & Gas Workers
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.
“I have to say Contendo met and exceeded my expectations. I am extremely happy with this as it provides all the necessary information in a user-friendly and easy format.”
