Presentation Title:

U of A Undergraduate Presentation Night


As follow-up to last month’s presentation on “Supporting the Heavy Oil Industry’s Future Professionals”, this month’s dinner meeting will feature three presentations on a range of Heavy Oil and Oilsands topics which should be of interest to those in the industry, presented by students who will soon be graduating and may soon be some of those future professionals. The students will be presenting the results of term projects they worked on as part of their Oil and Gas Property Evaluation course, which provide glimpses of the industry’s future. The three presentations will cover aspects of Reserves/Production, Economics, Technology, Risk, Policy and Markets associated with three quite different types of heavy oil assets of local, regional and international interest, and will illustrate the value of systemic assessment of potential opportunities. 

The three presentations will cover:

Conventional Heavy Oil Multi-well vs. Single Well Pads in the Cold Lake Oilsands – In the oil sands areas most new wells are now drilled from pads of four or more wells what benefits does this provide for the producer and the environment.

Shell Carmon Creek Project Diluent Supply Options – When exporting dilbit at 30% diluent, the diluent source can have a major impact on the project’s viability, this presentation covers the options Shell had for the now cancelled Carmon Creek project.

Trinidad Offshore CO2 EOR for Heavy Oil – Trinidad has access to large volumes of CO2 from petrochemicals and has many years of experience with onshore heavy oil CO2 EOR. Moving EOR offshore could increase competition for access to U.S. upgraders.


The U of A CHOA Student Chapter will also provide an update on the encouraging results achieved through offering the CHOA Heavy Oil 101 Course on Campus.


Speaker Biography:
