“A Showcase to Canadian Energy Management and Technology”

Canada’s energy industry has overcome some of the most challenging conditions in the world and continues to evolve by developing new technology and procedures. By implementing conventional and non-conventional drilling and production optimization practices, Canada’s industry is considered to be at the forefront of petroleum technology and is governed by one of the world’s most respected regulatory regimes.  As well, Canada is among the world’s leaders in designing and developing alternative energy from unconventional sources.

This year the Executive Program is being held from May 26 – June 9, 2010 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  Due to the language diversity of delegates, the program in presented in English only.  This program is unique in that it will focus on two of the most critical aspects of energy supply. 

The delegates have the opportunity of selecting one of two streams in which to participate.









  • The Heavy Oil stream addresses the effective and efficient recovery, refinement, transportation and marketing methods of heavy oil from existing fields addressing topics such as reservoir modeling, completions, pump optimization, and stimulations. (Click here to see outline.)
  • The Unconventional Natural Gas stream will focus on non-traditional energy sources including shale formations, tight reservoirs, and coal bed methane. (Click here to see outline.)

Both program streams will identify and address the technological, economical and operational viabilities of each energy stream and related topics.

This two-week Executive Program will bring together Canadian energy experts from the private sector and government regulatory agencies. The focus is on the ever challenging and constantly changing status of working with heavy oil and unconventional energy sources.  It provides participants access to the latest Canadian expertise through open dialogue, thought provoking discussions, complemented by topic related site visits to see theory put to proven practice. 

The Executive Program coincides with the 2010 Global Petroleum Show and Conference in Calgary - the world’s premier oil and gas event.  This event will host over 2,000 exhibiting companies presenting the latest oil and gas innovations, technologies, and services to over 60,000 attendees from around the world. 

Delegates will experience Calgary’s world-renowned hospitality and will have the opportunity of discovering two of Alberta’s most noted and visited treasures – Banff National Park and Drumheller, Alberta, home of the Royal Tyrrell Museum and the Alberta “badlands”.
