How will COVID-19 change our energy future: A perspective on what’s next for oil & gas
OERA Online Exchange
Brad Hayes engaged in a discussion with the OERA (Offshore Energy Research Association) Online Exchange series investigating changes in Canadian and worldwide energy supplies related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We explored how our current situation will influence the ongoing transition to alternative energy sources, and what roles the oil and gas sector have to play.

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
Next week Kathleen Dorey will be chairing the subject session on Wednesday morning, Sept 23rd as part of Geoconvention 2020. The talks will include case studies for the Charlie Lk. and horizontal well placement in Alberta as well as a sub-thrust exploration play in...
