PTRC IS AN EXPERT AT TAKING TECHNOLOGY THROUGH
TO FIELD TRIALS AND COMMERCIALIZATION
The PTRC has been instrumental in getting some of the
most cutting-edge technologies in enhanced oil recovery off the ground, and
into the field.
The PTRC’s Joint Implementation of Vapour Extraction (JIVE) Project
recently completed a series of three field trials, testing the use of different
solvents in heavy oil fields to help increase production and reduce CO2 emissions.
The trials were extremely successful, and additional vapour extraction
field trials are planned as a part of the STEPS network, including a project
that will include Husky, Devon Energy and the Petroleum Technology Alliance of

Monitoring and Storage Project (another PTRC field study on the measurement and
monitoring of CO2 storage in a depleted oil field) visit the PTRC’s
