I know nothing about refining oil
However correct me if I am wrong, it is simply heating up the oil and taking the condensate off. Much like making booze. So why not just put the oil sands in the cracker and hit it with lasers powered by a nice little Candu reactor? Heating the oil sands over and over to get the end stage thousands of kilometres from the source makes no sense.
