10th Annual Oil Sands Symposium
Venue: Hyatt Regency
|Event Date/Time: Nov 16, 2011||End Date/Time: Nov 17, 2011|
The shifting economic landscape has created environmental concerns in Canada and the USA, significantly delaying pipeline projects that were set to transport crude oil to refineries in the USA and markets in Asia Pacific via Canadaâ€™s west coast.
Shortage of skilled labour and land use concerns are also plaguing the industry, making time to market a significant challenge; as a result, producers are tackling high project cost and overruns. The industry is now faced with finding new markets to capitalize on rising oil prices and the best method of transportation to these markets.
CI Energy Groupâ€™s 10th Annual Oil Sands Symposium will address time to market and market access from a stakeholder perspective. Hear from industry experts on how to access lucrative foreign markets while utilizing effective methods to reduce costs and avoid project over-runs.
Gain critical information on the impact of a National Energy Strategy on the oil sands industry and examine the oil sands as a major contributor to the global energy supply.
This yearâ€™s program will address:
-New market opportunities for Canadaâ€™s crude oil
-How to overcome current challenges in oil sands development to improve time to market
-Best practices for responsible development to mitigate current global perception
-Viable solutions for accessing lucrative markets â€“ Pipeline development and railway networks
-Strategies for addressing the issue of attracting and retaining skilled labour
