Description: This diagram illustrates how CSS and SAGD are used to produce bitumen from the oil sands. CSS uses a single well to both inject steam into the bitumen containing reservoir and to produce the heated bitumen in a three-stage process. SAGD uses a pair of wells to produce bitumen. One well injects steam underground to heat the bitumen and the second well produces the heated bitumen.
