Project Industry: Oil Sands – Mining

  • In-Pit Extraction Process Demonstration

    Canadian Natural has taken significant steps to reduce emissions through a comprehensive GHG strategy and investments in technology and innovation. Our long-term aspirational target is net zero emissions in our oil sands operations and the in-pit extraction process (IPEP) is one of the potential technologies that could help us achieve this target. The IPEP technology […]

  • Sunlight powered GHG treatment for oil sands tailings ponds

    Tailings ponds in Alberta’s oil sands are a substantial source of fugitive emissions, including methane and carbon dioxide. The ponds contribute as much as 5-10% of the total greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of oil sands mining operations and impact local air quality and odor. To date, no viable solution has been selected by mine operators […]

  • Kearl ConDex Flue Gas Heat and Water Recovery Project

    This project will demonstrate ConDex boiler flue gas and water recovery technology at Imperial’s Kearl Oil Sands mine. The ConDex technology is designed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by capturing and using exhaust heat otherwise lost to the atmosphere through the flue gas streams in oil sands mining operations. The technology is a high-performance […]

  • In-Pit Extraction Process

    Canadian Natural Resources Limited (Canadian Natural) will demonstrate a field pilot of its In-Pit Extraction Process (IPEP) technology, an alternative to conventional oil sands mining and ore processing. The IPEP technology involves a relocatable, modular extraction plant that can be moved as the mine face advances. Ore processing and bitumen separation occurs adjacent to mining […]
