Water Conference

The second COSIA Water Conference, now including Alberta Innovates – Energy Environment Solutions (AI-EES) as a conference partner, builds on the inaugural 2014 conference and five previous CONRAD Water Usage Workshops over the past decade which established a reputation for best-in-class discussions on water management in the oil sands industry in Alberta.

This important biennial event enables industry, researchers, governments, and the service, supply and technology sectors to advance technology research, development and deployment aimed at environmental performance improvement for water management in the oil sands.

The 2016 two-day conference will take place on March 22 to 23 in Calgary, AB. Online registration is now closed but registrations are being accepted onsite at the BMO Centre in Calgary during conference hours.

Workshops Now Open

Oil sands water challenges are complex, even to those involved in the business every day. To maximize the conference value for all attendees, especially for those new to the oil sands, we are pleased to offer four half-day workshops the day before the conference, March 21. These workshops presented by industry insiders and experts will help bring attendees up-to-speed on mining and in situ oil sands water fundamentals and technical challenges, and on monitoring water quality impacts.
