Saa Dene Group helping to decarbonize enhanced oil recovery
Canada West Foundation - January 25, 2021
Calgary-based Acceleware and the Saa Dene Group, a collective of Indigenous-owned companies headed by Chief Jim Boucher, are bringing the heat to transform enhanced oil recovery technology in Alberta.
The partnership, called Acceleware | Kisâstwêw (which means “heat” in Cree), is an effort to promote Acceleware’s RF XL technology to industry and policy makers. The technology significantly reduces GHG emissions, water and land use associated with oil sands operations. In October 2020, Acceleware received regulatory approval to proceed with a pilot test for the technology near Cold Lake, Alta.
