PTAC Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada along with its partners and sponsors invites you and suitable representatives from your organization to participate at the 2006 Water Innovation in the Oil Patch Conference, being held at the Round-Up Centre in Calgary. Platform presentations will be held on June 21st followed by parallel workshops on the following day. Poster sessions will be held throughout both days.

The Alberta Ingenuity Centre for Water Research is proud to sponsor an awards presentation for the most innovative technologies presented at the Conference. Bursaries of $3000 for 1st prize and $1500 for 2nd prize will be presented for the most innovative water related technology presented at the Conference. A $500 bursary will be awarded for 3rd prize to the most innovative water related technology presented at the Conference poster session. Prizes will be presented at a networking reception to close out the event on June 22nd.

DAY 1 – June 21st, 2006

Day 1 will feature 20-minute case study presentations of new technology, process applications or proposed technology demonstration projects followed by Q&A panels. Presentations, case studies, demonstrations and posters may showcase one or more of the following topics:

  • Produced water reuse/recycle/reduction and treatment;
  • Shallow and Unconventional Gas development (including uses of produced water, fracture stimulation, groundwater contamination, structural/geological impacts, methane migration);
  • Municipal/industrial wastewater (alternative uses and treatment in the oil and gas industry);
  • Water use in SAGD and use of alternate fluids for in-situ bitumen and heavy oil recovery;
  • Aquifer protection techniques;
  • Groundwater remediation technologies;
  • Oilfield injection (alternate methods for enhanced recovery).

DAY 2 – June 22nd, 2006

Day 2 will feature parallel workshops, which will require pre-registration. The workshop participants will be asked to brainstorm on various technology issues including legal/regulatory perspectives on water ownership and liability. Your input and expertise are appreciated and needed to develop a successful framework for providing answers to future water management issues. These workshops will provide an excellent opportunity to bring industry, government and societal groups together and guide cooperative work.

The workshops will be facilitated by a subject matter expert and begin with a presentation outlining the objectives of the workshop. Two workshops will run concurrently in the morning, followed by another two concurrent workshops in the afternoon.
