Details

Following on from their successful 'Technology Transfer Workshop', CanGEA are back again with a new, exciting workshop designed to provide yet more information on the ever growing geothermal industry.

The Geothermal Co-Production Workshop will focus on the viable options for Geothermal/Petroleum energy co-generation. It will discuss how we can offer sustainable conversions of existing Oil & Gas infrastructure into Geothermal energy generation utilizing hot production water resources already at the surface from hydrocarbon extraction.

Some of the benefits of Co-Production are;

    •    Offset expensive and wasteful water disposal costs
    •    CO2 credits
    •    Opportunity to increase well and land value with added profits
    •    Reduce Taxpayer Orphan Well liability if used in production
    •    Continue Oil & Gas royalties from wells that continue to produce
    •    Create jobs and retain employees
    •    Clean usable power and heat to remote locations with transmission costs for off grid diesel.

 

WORKSHOP

The workshop will run between 9.00am - 4.30pm (MT), and will include topics as diverse as;

  • Geothermal optimization of heat and power 
  • Co-Production Facilities & Turbines
  • Heat Transfer Equipment
  • Reservoir Engineering for Geothermal Applications

To register for the workshop please visit the CanGEA website found here.

 

NETWORKING SESSION

Following the workshop will be an informal networking event running from 4.30pm - 6.30pm MT.

This will give attendees a chance to discuss the themes raised in the workshop and share ideas amongst each other. To register for the Networking Session please visit here.

 

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.

We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.

We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
