PTAC Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada invites you to join us for this informative event. Sustainable resource development and access to the resource are some of the leading challenges facing industry today. The oil and gas industry is committed to integrated resource management by managing physical footprint on the landscape and minimizing industry-based effects on species, ecosystems and ecosystem components. The challenge facing industry is to reduce impacts to biodiversity and ecological processes while continuing to sustainably develop, reclaim, and effectively restore areas impacted by oil and gas development. At the same time, it is important that policy and regulatory requirements governing oil and gas activity in these areas are informed through research and sound science.
Oil and gas producers have in recent years invested millions of dollars in ecological related research projects to address challenges. The broad focus areas of these projects include the role of predation in woodland caribou population declines; the effectiveness of footprint reclamation or functional restoration; the effectiveness of mitigation activities; and wildlife responses to oil and gas activity.
This event will provide technical updates from the 2018/19 industry sponsored research that has oversight from industry and government technical champions. Presentation highlights will include project learnings/outcomes, best practices, potential cost savings, and future impact to policy and regulations. Interspersed among the project-based presentations will be presentations related to recently identified priority issues and initiatives for the oil and gas sector.
