The Recovery Technologies program advances technologies that improve hydrocarbon recovery while reducing associated emissions.
On This Page
Hydrocarbon recovery has been a pillar of Alberta’s economy for almost a century and is comprised of many sub-sectors: conventional, unconventional, oil sands mining, and oil sands in-situ. The Recovery Technologies program advances technologies that improve recovery efficiency, create value for operators, reduce associated emissions, and/or unlock new resources. This includes new recovery processes, improved tools to access/produce reservoirs, and improved technologies for evaluating opportunities.
