Course description

Evaluating and Developing Heavy Oil Resources - HOED

This course is largely designed for geoscientists or engineers with a need to advance their understanding of heavy oil/in-situ oil sands resources.

Beginning level concepts are covered and widely focused enough to appeal to a broad audience seeking an introduction to the business of heavy oil/in-situ oil sands including non-technical, administrative, and business groups. However, more technically advanced topics are also covered, for which students are generally expected to have a broadly based technical foundation for understanding.


Heavy oil/in-situ oil sands provide a large potential supply of the world's oil resource. Cold production, oil sands mining, and in-situ thermal production methodologies are important contributors to the world's oil production. These technologies are reasonably recent commercial applications, and the future levels of production faces uncertainty because of highly debated environmental and technical challenges.
