Low Carbon Innovation Alliance looking for alternatives to existing steam generation processes used in in situ production
EDMONTON—Members of the Low Carbon Innovation Alliance (LCIA) are looking to obtain submissions on alternative technologies for heating bitumen reservoirs for in situ production in the oilsands.
The group is looking for non-confidential submissions that offer alternatives to existing steam generation processes while delivering the same or more energy compared to once through steam generators (OTSGs).
The submissions must also provide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions when compared to OTSGs, according to the LCIA.
Technologies at any stage of development will be considered, and proposals may be considered for funding by LCIA members, which includes the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corp. (CCEMC), Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures (AITF), Carbon Management Canada (CMC), Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), and Sustainable Technology and Development Canada (SDTC).
The deadline for responses is Dec. 12, 2014.
