Alan Abrams, VP of Underground Engineering, and Dr. Jen Russel-Houston, Geosciences Manager, presented a paper discussing the application of Osum’s underground well system technology in the Grosmont carbonate formation at the 2009 Gussow Geoscience Conference this past October. The theme of the conference this year was “Engineering Sustainable Oilsands Development”.
An underground well system is one option to reduce the surface footprint of a traditional SAGD, and the technology was well received at the conference.
