About this Conference

The 2016 SPE Canada Heavy Oil Technical Conference with its theme “Technology Meets the Challenges” will build on a strong tradition of using formal paper presentations and industry networking to advance corporate and individual knowledge of current technologies. The result of this knowledge transfer will be barrels produced in a more sustainable manner – safely, environmentally, and economically.

The conference provides oil sands engineering insights in the 85+ presentations that are primarily sub-surface focused. Held in conjunction with the Global Petroleum Show, it is attended by approximately 500 engineers, geologists and professionals involved in the heavy oil industry.

A rigorous screening of all abstracts will ensure the technical quality of the program which will include the geosciences and thermal, non-thermal and hybrid recovery processes for the oil sands and heavy oil.

Join this year’s conference and be part of one of the most anticipated events in the region.
