Innovation

Doing our part.

In our generation, Canada’s oil and natural gas industry can become the high-tech environmental leader of the world. The ingenuity of our engineers is top notch, and the technologies that we continue to develop here in Canada can be shared around the world.

Our country’s oil sands producers are investing in more than 814 technologies and best practices to the tune of $1.3 billion dollars. Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) is working to find innovate solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, minimize impact on land, reduce water use and improve tailings management. 

Canada’s oil and natural gas industry is working to find a solution to climate change, and that solution will come from energy innovation. Several companies are already pursuing ways to reduce emissions by participating in pilot projects that use solvents in oil sands in situ operations and in projects that use carbon capture and storage technology. 

  • Canada is demonstrating its commitment to becoming a world leader in environmental innovation through its investment of more than $1.3 billion in technologies and best practices.
  • Canada’s energy industry is participating in pilot projects that use solvents in oil sands in situ operations and in projects that use carbon capture and storage technology. 
  • COSIA is made up of 13 industry leaders that are committed to collaborating and sharing intellectual property to fast track innovation.
