Innovation is increasingly being regarded as the foundation needed for non-renewable energy development, and even perhaps its future existence. Alberta has a very unique crude oil; it’s a solid at room temperature in its native form. Industry has chosen to make it a liquid to conform to what a crude oil is thought to be – a liquid!
But by returning it to its native form; 1) we extract the diluent, 2) package it as a solid, 3) transport it to global markets in Dot-111’s or 20’ Shipping Container’s. Alberta’s Bitumen is the world’s safest crude oil, together we need to do a better job promoting it – as a solid.
A new refining process made economic by its module design. The opportunity to export Alberta’s heavy oil to world markets, create value added products, and most importantly put people back to work!
