Operations - Jackfish Projects 

Projects Overview
Devon's Jackfish Projects are located approximately 15 km (10 miles) southeast of Conklin, Alberta. Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) is the technology that is being used to extract the bitumen over the life of the projects.

Devon has and will continue to work with local stakeholders to develop a strong foundation and operating principles for the Jackfish Projects that balance environmental, social and economic considerations.
