Forum Scope

Canada’s oil sands industry stands as front-runner in the ever-changing global hydrocarbon energy industry, and has undergone extensive technology improvements in recent years. However, opportunities for new game changing technologies, as well as continuous improvement to current technologies remain the focus of oil sands activity as a whole.

In addressing these issues, PTAC invites you to join us in exploring how these technology advancements will benefit the oil sands sector through presentations from major industry and government leaders, of near-commercial technology solutions, case studies, and pilot projects. The day’s proceedings will include presentations on future challenges and opportunities by the newly appointed Minister of the Alberta Department of Energy, Frank Oberle, and the building momentum of oil sands technologies from key industry leaders such as, Canadian Natural Resources Ltd, Cenovus Energy, and Statoil, as well as exciting updates on technology demonstration projects from organizations such as Nexen Energy and Baker Hughes.

Overall, this forum will function as the central stage for “Building on Technology Momentum” in the Canadian oil sands industry, and is an event that those who wish to remain informed on technology advancements will not want to miss!
