In 1978, Petro-Canada, as operator for a five-party group including Esso Resources, Husky, Canada-Cities Service (now Canadian Occidental), and Gulf Canada, initiated the MAISP project at an outcrop near Fort McMurray. Three horizontal wells were drilled and completed in the oil sands. The wells were successfully steam stimulated over a period of 1.5 years.

This paper will review the history of the project, summarize the accomplishments, and give some general comments on future application of the results.
