We're not going to see another Fort Hills (for e.g.) that comes up from scratch.



Suncor just filed for a megaproject to potentially start early 2020s.

Just like shale, it will become a new technology game for future thermals.

Electromagnetic heating? Whoa! Instead of SAGD, it's EAGD?

Is Firebag complete now?

We'll see

I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

Shell ran some EM heating test in the peace river area. I think they called that a "technical success" but it was never economic. But as electricity, natural gas and oil prices fluctuate, it could be in the future.

NSolv also had their pilot plant up in the McKay area, using solvent based extraction. I believe their trial run just ended.

How does the solvent extraction work? Chemical reaction to separate the bitumen?... Then it oozes out together, then separate it again?

Nope. Think SAGD, but with a different S, which leads to less water and less energy to heat the water.

I was part of a project with Athabasca a few years back where they were using electric heaters to heat up a formation.

250m long electric heater in a well bore with a producer well directly below it.

Not sure how its going now...was mostly producing water the last time I checked. But it has been a few years.

bloomberg article on oilpatch hiring quote:

Somewhat interesting; hopefully it means more opportunities for some that are currently unemployed.

I think the office has become leaner than ever.

Not a lot of administrative/professional openings and the ones that are require 10+ years experience.
