A collection of working papers that helped inform the final report and recommendations, including: • Recommended Models for Calculating Diffusion From Point Sources With Applications to the Athabasca Bituminous Sands Area Western Research & Development Ltd • Meteorological Aspects of the...
The purpose of this project is to provide AOSERP with a preliminary understanding of the state of the art of in situ bitumen recovery technology, the most probable application and rate of application of that technology to the Athabasca deposit, and the resultant implications for the environment...
Abstract: A pile load test program carried out in Iqaluit, Northwest Territories, to provide design information for the Short Range Radar sites is described. The program consisted of testing 10 steel pipe piles with various surface modifications backfilled with clean sand and 4 Dywidag bars...
Hydrotechnical research in the Alberta Oil Sands has been oriented toward establishment of baseline (i.e. pre-development) environmental conditions and identification of contaminant transport mechanisms. Monitoring networks for both groundwaters and surface waters are in place and both water...
An investigation was conducted on heavy oil cracking using polarized hot stage microscopy and laser dynamic backscattering. Both of these in-situ techniques were used to monitor cracking reactions through the use of backscattering. The use of hot stage microscopy resulted in a series of...
The heavy oils produced from the Alberta oil sands contain cyclic organic compounds together with sulphur and nitrogen. Upon thermal treatment they have the potential to form carcinogenic, mutagenic, and toxic compounds. Recovery of oil by in-situ combustion processes, such as the Combination of...
Monitoring Procedures for Wellsite, In-Situ Oil Sands and Coal Mine Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) – December 2014 UpdateDownload
The scope of the Monitoring Procedure for Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) project is to develop a geomatics-based monitoring system to support the Government of Alberta’s efforts for monitoring reclamation success. This software will support the decision making process to screen almost all oil...
The Oil Sands Leadership Initiative (OSLI) is a collaboration of five progressive oil sands operators (ConocoPhillips Canada, Nexen Inc., Statoil Canada, Suncor Energy Inc. and Total E&P Canada), with the Government of Alberta participating as an observer, working to advance the development of...
The Athabasca Oil Sands cover an area of approximately 36,000 km2 and contain an estimated 626 billion barrels of bitumen (approximately 100 billion m3) in place. Recovery of this bitumen will be undertaken by strip mining where the oil sands are covered by less than 100 m of overburden. The...
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...
