DESIGN, BUILD & GET PROJECTS OFF THE GROUND QUICKLY

SUCCESS STORIES FOCUSING ON COST-SAVINGS, INNOVATION & EFFICIENCY

There has been a significant uptake in the development of new projects and expansion of existing facilities - but the focus is still on innovation and cost savings. Operators want to get projects off the ground sooner so that they can start making money quickly. But Canada's operators are operating in a very different environment than anywhere else.

  • Stringent regulations, gas conservation requirements and extreme temperatures mean facilities need to be designed to accommodate for these regional nuances without increasing capital outlay and the cost of operating. Some critical questions are being asked right now. 

The opening operator-led keynote panel sets the foundation for the 2019 Well Site Facilities Canada conference, designed with a view to help operators plan better and delivers insight on how to...
