Charting a Path to Net-Zero by 2050: PTAC's Role in Advancing Technology within the Oil and Gas Industry

presented by: Soheil Asgarpour, President & CEO, Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada

 

Presentation Overview:

In this presentation, we will delve into PTAC's role as both a facilitator and manager of technology advancement within the oil and gas industry, driving us towards the ambitious goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. Our discussion will encompass a spectrum of cutting-edge technologies and best management practices developed through PTAC's dynamic consortia. We'll explore these key areas:

  • Mitigating Methane Emissions: Discover how PTAC's collaborative efforts have led to innovative solutions for reducing methane emissions, contributing to a cleaner and more sustainable industry.
  • Cost-Effective Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS): Learn about the way through collaboration PTAC has helped to lower the cost of CCUS technologies.
  • Integration of High Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor Technology with Oil Sands Processes: Uncover how advanced high-temperature gas-cooled reactor technology can help reduce oil sands GHG emissions.
  • Enhanced Oil Recovery for Net-Zero Goals: Explore how advancing enhanced oil recovery techniques reduced GHG emissions intensities.

GEOLOGICAL FIELD TRIP TO CANADIAN ROCKIES

 

Western Canada offers some of the most amazing views you will ever experience. By the end of September, there will be snow on the mountain tops, and the fall tree colours will be spectacular.

 

On September 29, you have an exclusive opportunity to travel from Calgary and tour the Canadian Rockies with an experienced geologist who will point out various structures and locations of interest to scientists and the general public, alike. There is limited space on the coach, so do not delay in booking a seat.

 

The tour will depart Hotel Arts at 7:00 am on September 29, and make its way to the Columbia Icefields. After a visit there, we'll head to Banff. The tour will arrive back at Hotel Arts late evening the same day. Breakfast to go and lunch will be provided.
