Calgary - Breakfast Overview: Competitiveness of the Canadian Regulatory Structure for the Oil and Gas Sector

October 23, 2019

Breakfast 8:00 - 8:30 am
Presentation: 8:30 - 9:15 am
Question and Answer: 9:15 - 10:00 am

Oil and gas production and transport are major considerations when determining how to combat climate change. It is also an important sector of the economy which brings with it concerns related to construction activities, health and safety and environmental stewardship. This study will consider the different environmental, social and economic regulations and their individual and cumulative costs and benefits on society and the sector. This project will review different policies implemented federally and by provincial or territorial jurisdictions. It will consider their stated objectives and provide a valuation of those goals and a valuation of the impact on the sector. This study will also consider similar regulations of US jurisdictions in that competitive analysis and assess how export-exposed industries might be affected and whether “carbon leakage” should be a consideration.

Edmonton - Breakfast Overview: Electricity Storage Systems: Applications and Business Cases

Electricity storage systems (ESS) are gaining attention from the electric utility policy makers and system operators. Primary factors that have led to this renewed interest include increasing share of variable renewable sources in the electricity generation mix, large capital costs of electricity grid infrastructure required to ensure system reliability, and high costs associated with managing peak electricity demands. The perceived benefits of ESS have led to new storage technology developments, demonstration projects, and research projects that quantify the benefits of ESS systems. This CERI study provides an assessment of three distinct value propositions covering both customer side and bulk electricity system side applications.

Calgary - Breakfast Overview: Oil Sands Supply Cost Update & Crude Oil Outlook

September 13, 2019

Breakfast 8:00 - 8:30 am
Presentation: 8:30 - 9:15 am

Tickets $45.00 + GST

As part of an annual update, the oil sands supply costs and development projects study conducted a 20-year production forecast of oil sands bitumen and Synthetic Crude Oil (SCO). In addition to updating the production outlook, supply costs of oil sands projects and GHG emissions profile, economic impact analysis will be evaluated using Input/Output models for Canadian and US impacts.

The second study examines Canada’s conventional crude oil and natural gas industries, including production forecasts, supply costs and GHG emissions profiles over the next 20 years. This study covers onshore and offshore conventional oil, including shale and tight oil activity, conventional natural gas, coalbed methane, tight and shale gas, and the associated natural gas liquids (pentanes plus and condensate only), but does not include oil sands. Also, to updating the production costs and production forecasts, economic impact analysis on Canadian and the US economies is presented.


Bow Valley College - Supply Costs and Emission Profiles of Petrochemical Products in Selected Hubs

This study quantifies GHG emissions from petrochemical processes and evaluates supply costs of products from various processing pathways and petrochemical hubs. The hubs assessed are located in Alberta, Ontario, Texas (US), and South Korea. In assessing supply costs and emission profiles, CERI examined 5 feedstock types, including ethane, propane, ethane/propane mix, LPG, and naphtha.

CERI 2019 Petrochemical Conference - Field of Dreams: We're Building it, They're Here

June 09, 2019

June 9 - 11, 2019
Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge,
Alberta 1 Centennial Drive,
Kananaskis Village, Alberta

The Canadian petrochemical sector sits perched on the edge of opportunity as it weighs risks associated with the significant commitment required to make large project dreams a reality. The industry also teeters on the edge of transformational change due to availability of feedstocks, the shifting market, technologically disruptive changes to existing and future processes and products, and ever-more stringent social and environmental expectations. Will access to significant feedstock from the liquids rich Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin alone be enough to provide investors with the confidence they need in a competitive international market? Location, location, location. How are geographical advantages weighed when making FID? Location clearly provides an edge over the competition, but does location make or break the feasibility of a project? How will local consumption of products and the transition from linear to circular economies impact the sector?


CERI is pleased to offer a discounted registration rate for students enrolled in full-time studies. To qualify, you must provide valid proof of enrollment upon registering for the conference. Please email cwilliams@ceri.ca with your documentation. Space is limited to 30 registrants.

NAIT - Economic and Emissions Impacts of Fuel Decarbonization

May 23, 2019

Fuel decarbonization, also referred to as a low-carbon fuel standard, is a policy or regulation to reduce carbon-intensity (CI) usually in transportation fuels as compared to conventional petroleum fuels, such as gasoline and diesel. Traditionally, the main objective of fuel decarbonization is to decrease carbon dioxide emissions associated with vehicles powered by various types of internal combustion engines while considering the entire life cycle ("well to wheels") carbon footprint of transportation. This project evaluates the potential greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction of fuel decarbonization scenarios and their overall economic cost. The analysis explores two scenarios to reduce the carbon intensity of gaseous, liquid, and solid fuels against the Business as Usual (BAU) scenario. The study assesses how these three fuel types affect the industrial (including agriculture), transportation and building sectors.

CERI WEBINAR SERIES: Market Review of Natural Gas Liquids in Western Canada

March 28, 2019

This study conducts qualitative and quantitative analysis to understand how different market factors could foster or constrain Western Canadian Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) market development. An in-depth analysis of the Western Canadian NGLs market strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) at the industry level, as well as for each commodity, was conducted. A large contributing part of the study were interviews with businesses, governments, regulatory agencies and associations which shared their views regarding the further development of the market.

CERI Breakfast Overview - An Economic Assessment of the International Maritime Organizations Sulphur Regulations on Markets for Canadian Crude Oil

Recent IMO regs set a global limit for sulphur in fuel oil used to power ships at 0.5% (by mass) from the current 3.5% starting in Jan 2020. The regs restrict emissions from ships plying international waters which could significantly change the crude oil landscape at regional & global levels. The change will propagate through the value chain; from the marine industry seeking replacement fuels to refiners producing bunker fuel & upstream oil producers who produce crudes that generate high sulphur residues used in bunkering. Canada is a major producer of high sulphur heavy crude oil which is refined primarily in CAN & US where there are sufficient capacities of complex refineries to handle this type of crude. Canadian (CAN) bitumen contributes very little to bunkering as it is consumed by complex refining in CAN & US. CAN crude will have to compete for US refining space on netback refining value with other crudes that currently contribute to High Sulphur Fuel Oil (HSFO) supply.

This study considers alternative pathways transforming the electricity grid in the four western provinces:  British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  The project built high resolution spatially and temporally explicit interconnected electric power systems of the four provinces.  Using the model, the project assessed different pathways to achieve deeper emissions reductions, impacts on the system reliability, value of trade, and impacts on electricity rates.  The project also provides insights into necessary attributes of technologies and system configurations that would facilitate the transition to cleaner electric power systems.
