The Nsolv process involves the injection of a pure, heated solvent vapour into a bitumen reservoir where it delivers heat as it condenses. A small amount of heat greatly improves the solvent’s ability to dissolve the bitumen, with resulting low-viscosity liquids draining by gravity to a production well. The process uses commercially proven horizontal-well technology widely implemented in current heavy oil recovery operations.


Until now, developing in-situ reserves has been a major cost for producers and the environment. Nsolv overcomes these challenges by delivering robust economic returns, even in low oil price environments or in challenging reservoirs, such as thin-pay, shallow-depth and low-pressure zones. Nsolv also achieves approximately 80 per cent reduced greenhouse gas emissions compared to SAGD processes, while consuming no water.

Our Partners

Doing business with us

Having demonstrated the environmental and economic benefits of our warm solvent extraction process, Nsolv is ready for commercial implementation. We are seeking a resource owner partnership with a forward-thinking company interested in taking a leadership position in the industry and will consider various financing options. Our process is safeguarded by more than 400 patents and claims registered in Canada, the United States and other foreign jurisdictions.
