What is “in situ”?


This is a production method widely used in the oil sands. “In situ” means “in place,” because bitumen is separated from the sand and water below ground, right in the deposit itself. About 80% of all oil sands production use in situ technology. In situ technology is needed to produce bitumen from deposits deeper than 70 metres.
