A message from the Executive Editor

Dear Colleagues,

Unlocking the estimated 400 billion bbls of bitumen in Alberta's carbonate reservoirs is an ongoing challenge for the industry. There have been a number of thermal pilots since the 1980s. The data from the latest Saleski steam injection pilot will become public in the summer of 2014, and SPE will publish a special issue of JCPT on the topic of "Bitumen Recovery from Carbonate Reservoirs" at that time. We invite you to submit an abstract for a manuscript to provide us with a basis for planning.

Abstracts should be emailed directly to Gokhan Coskuner at gokhan.coskuner@huskyenergy.com. Deadline for abstracts is 31 May 2013; deadline for submitting the full manuscript will be 30 September 2013. All submitted manuscripts will go through SPE’s standard peer review process.

Please disseminate this information within your company and to others who may be interested in presenting a paper, and encourage your colleagues to prepare a paper for this special issue.

Sincerely,

Gokhan Coskuner
Executive Editor, Journal of Canadian Petroleum Technology
