The Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) was originally proposed to the Oil Sands Environmental Management Division of Alberta Environment by the School of Energy and the Environment (SEE), University of Alberta in December 2007. The need for OSRIN was described as follows:...
Twenty journalists who regularly produce articles, televised reports and videos about the Alberta oil sands and issues pertaining to the oil sands participated in this study. Although most of the stories about the Alberta oil sands that appear in the news media have a business or economic focus,...
The Alberta Oil Sands Then and Now: An Investigation of the Economic, Environmental and Social Discourses Across Four DecadesDownload
A detailed study of dozens of documents pertaining to the Alberta oil sands produced by the Alberta government over the past 40 years shows the government’s perspective regarding this vast resource has undergone a major shift. In the 1970s and early 1980s, the Alberta government initiated...
Large volumes of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) are produced by the surface-mining oil sands industry in Alberta. The industry is following a no-release practice for OSPW due to its potential environmental toxicity. Both laboratory and field studies have demonstrated that OSPW is toxic...
As one of its last projects, the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) conducted this survey of oil sands environmental management research and information needs. The survey was conducted in October and early November 2014 for OSRIN by the University of Alberta’s Population Research...
A random sample of 1,032 Albertans, aligned with the Statistics Canada 2006 demographic profile of the Province of Alberta, completed an on-line survey with two elements: a conjoint best-worse survey, and a set of attitudinal questions. The goal of the CSI-OSRIN Oil Sands Survey (the survey) was...
A number of factors led to the need for a workshop to discuss surface water – groundwater interactions in the oil sands. These included: • Current government policies and the development of new policies and frameworks • Continued uncertainty regarding the potential for interactions and the...
The Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) has identified six program areas in which it is funding work. Within each program area, we have launched projects to scope out the state of knowledge, identify knowledge gaps, and provide insights regarding R&D priorities. • Tailings...
NAIT-CGCE, NAIT School of Sustainable Building and Environmental Management, and the NAIT JR Shaw School of Business, in collaboration with COSIA, AIEES, and the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN), held a technology innovation workshop on March 19, 2013 at the NAIT campus to open...
Standard Operating Procedures for Analysis of Naphthenic Acids from Oil Sands Process-Affected WaterDownload
Naphthenic acids (NAs) are considered the main source of chronic and acute toxicity in oil sands process-affected water (OSPW). The purpose of this investigation is to establish elements of a standard procedure to determine and minimize the amount of NA loss during storage, sample preparation...
