Environment Environment: Soil Remediation, Site Restoration and Groundwater

PTAC Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada along with our partners and co-sponsors invite you and suitable representatives from your organization to participate in a soil and groundwater forum and poster session.

Our diverse technical program will offer progress reports on ongoing and exciting new projects and provide updates on emerging environmental regulations pertaining to the remediation and reclamation of oil and gas production sites. A networking reception will provide additional opportunity to exchange findings, ideas and network with peers.

This forum will be of interest to oil and gas industry stakeholders who would like to learn more about emerging environmental issues and advances in soil and groundwater remediation research that are of relevance to Western Canada. Highlighted research projects will have an applied science focus and include lab- and field-scale work. A Poster Session will feature additional research projects.


  • Hear about advances made in applied soil and groundwater remediation and site reclamation research
  • Learn about innovative strategies and technological solutions
  • Interact with technical experts and industry representatives
  • Participate in a poster session to obtain additional information on new relevant research and technologies
  • Participate in a networking reception
