The AEG Podcast, Episode 6: Energy Literacy and the Challenges of the 21st Century

In this AEG Podcast between Catherine and Brad Hayes about energy and energy transition. Brad explains that most Canadians are not energy literate as energy has always been available to them, and people only become more informed when there is a shortage of energy. However, due to recent energy shortages in European countries, people are becoming more aware of the complexities of energy. Brad emphasizes that providing adequate energy should be the top priority as nothing can be achieved without adequate and affordable energy. Government policies should ensure adequate energy supply at the top of the list, with environmental protection coming in second. Brad believes that the term energy transition is a loaded term, and the sensible approach is to transform our energy delivery system from a certain mix to a different mix in the future. Brad also suggests various sources to obtain factual information on energy, and Catherine adds that we should always question what we are being told.

Information on the podcast can be found at the Alberta Enterprise Group website.

Petrel Robertson is excited to share the news that Imperial Helium Corp will be acquired by Royal Helium

Petrel Robertson is excited to share the news that Imperial Helium Corp will be acquired by Royal Helium. As a founding partner and technical service provider to Imperial, we are very proud of the value that has been created with the discovery and appraisal of the Steveville helium pool. Imperial brings a highly economic helium asset, ready to develop and put on production, to the deal and will benefit from Royal’s strong industry relationships and access to capital.

PRCL welcomes Tony Fogarassy as VP Business Development and Indigenous Affairs

PRCL is pleased to welcome Tony Fogarassy back to our team as Vice President of Business Development and Indigenous Affairs. Tony is based in Vancouver and works with the natural resources community and Indigenous peoples across Canada and internationally. He has worked on several major projects with PRCL, including as a co-founder of Tuzo Energy, First Helium and Imperial Helium. We look forward to building new ventures together and to build more ties with Indigenous communities participating in Canadian resource development.

PRCL facilitates 21st century Energy Transitions

We apply our subsurface geoscience and engineering expertise to oil and gas, water resource characterization, geothermal resources, subsurface energy storage and carbon sequestration, and exploration for helium and other strategic commodities

THE 21st CENTURY ENERGY TRANSITION

Petrel Robertson is playing an important role as Canada and the world transition to more diverse energy sources and storage.

Oil and gas will be critical for energy and petrochemicals for decades to come.  PRCL supports orderly, efficient, and environmentally responsible development of oil and gas resources.  Much of our oil- and gas-related work now supports initiatives such as identifying water source and disposal opportunities for unconventional oil and gas, while ensuring protection of fresh water resources.

We are also finding opportunities to leverage our subsurface skill sets beyond oil and gas, including:

  • Exploring for and developing other resources, such as minerals-rich saline brines and helium, found in deep gas reservoirs
  • Characterizing saline water resources in deep aquifers to supply water for hydraulic fracturing, and to safely dispose of waste water from petroleum and other industrial processes
  • Characterizing fresh water resources in shallow aquifers, as water supply for many uses, and to guard against contamination
  • Mapping areas at risk from induced seismicity
  • Evaluating and planning geothermal energy development
  • Assessing and planning subsurface energy storage, as in caverns and fracture systems
