We present a preliminary analysis of the InSAR data acquired over the Pad 31 thermal EOR development area, located in the Peace River Oil Sands, Alberta, Canada.

While InSAR is often viewed as a technology for reservoir containment monitoring, we demonstrate that it may be very effectively used for conformance monitoring if data are acquired frequently.
