In response to the growing size of tailings ponds, mounting public scrutiny, and more intense efforts by the province to balance economic growth and environmental concerns, the ERCB's Directive 74 sets out tougher criteria for managing and reclaiming oil sands tailings in Alberta.

Ensure you know how to comply with the Directive's specifications

The Canadian Institute's "Tailings Management and Reclamation" conference will give you the critical information you need on planning and managing tailings and reclamation strategies. As of 2009, Alberta's energy regulator released new rules aimed at cleaning up tailings ponds for oil, gas and mining companies. Companies that don't comply could be forced to close parts or all of their multi-billion dollar facilities. Attend this conference and learn about new technologies to improve the extraction and clean-up process, and the implications for future reclamation efforts.

This must-attend event will delve into important issues impacting the oil, gas, mining and oil sands industries:

Get critical updates on the changing regulatory framework and how this impacts the growth and direction of the oil and gas sectors and oil sands industry
How specific policy decisions and new scientific research will ultimately affect project development, including costs and timelines
Determine the steps required to move new technologies to commercial success
Learn to address stakeholder concerns so that your project is not stalled or stopped
