  • Casing Expansion for Annular Wellbore Methane Leakage

  • Amigo

    Repsol Oil and Gas Canada Inc (Repsol), the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and University of Alberta (UAlberta) will prove the technical feasibility and assess potential leakage risk for CO2 geologic storage in an onshore, pressure-depleted gas reservoir. The candidate reservoir, located near Edson, Alberta in Canada is operated by Repsol and is being considered […]

  • Sparse Passive-Active Reservoir monitoring using Seismic, Electromagnetics, gravity, and surface deformation (SPARSE)

    As geological CO2 storage becomes commercially viable, the current state of technologies for subsurface monitoring and measurement will not be sufficient to monitor the large volumes of CO2 that will be injected and permanently stored. The most accurate way to monitor the subsurface today is by using 3D surface seismic data to create a baseline […]

  • Deploying Autonomous Oil & Gas Production Operations with an Adaptive Controller

    In 2018 Ambyint set out to deploy autonomous oil and gas production operations at scale on wells utilizing rod lift and plunger lift. The project’s initial focus was on deploying edge/IIoT technologies and data analytics to well optimization. The project transitioned to a greater platform focus to provide a feature set that covers all aspects […]

  • Reusing depleted oil and gas fields for CO2 sequestration

    The RETURN project will focus on enabling CO2 injection and storage into depleted oil and gas reservoirs for long-term CO2 storage by developing novel solutions for overcoming injection challenges. Currently, high-pressure CO2 injection into low-pressure depleted reservoirs can be challenging due to cooling and potential freezing in the near-well region, jeopardizing injectivity, near-well stability, and […]

  • A Coupled CO2 and Waste-water Treatment Process to Create High Value Gas/Oil Field Chemicals

    The University of British Columbia (UBC) has developed a technology that has the potential to have a large impact on global CO2 emissions while addressing the issue of dwindling global water reserves. The novel technology uses CO2 to desalinate industrial wastewater, creating a smaller carbon footprint and an economical alternative to conventional desalination technology. The […]

  • Field pilot demonstration of UBC’s waste-to-value innovation for conversion of carbon dioxide and desalination of wastewater in Alberta

    Mangrove’s innovation recovers extractable value for on-site utilization by converting carbon dioxide and saline wastewater produced during oil and gas operations to re-usable water and oil field chemicals. The technology offers a “bolt-on” solution that would allow the oil and gas sector to reduce operational costs in addition to reducing their water consumption, wastewater generation […]

  • Commercial deployment of Mangrove’s technology in the Alberta oil sands

  • Demonstration of Near Zero Emission Well Control System

    Pneumatic devices are the largest source of oil and gas methane emissions in Alberta. Valves, controllers and pumps at well sites run using pressurized methane that is released directly to the atmosphere. Alberta- based Calscan Energy aims to change this with the development and scale-up of their Near Zero Emission Well Control System. The solar-electric […]

  • Unlocking EPOD Economic Zero Bleed Pneumatic Instrument Air Retrofit Solution

    Westgen’s EPOD provides power and instrument air to remote wellsites to eliminate venting of gas through pneumatics devices. Currently being deployed on new wellsites, EPOD reduces capital cost, reduces operating costs, improves production uptime, and earns carbon credits. With support from Emissions Reduction Alberta and in partnership with ten oil and gas producers, Westgen will […]
