Part 4 of 4
In the final part of their keynote presentation, the wide-spread collaboration among oil sand companies on tailings research and technology is highlighted.
COSIA is the latest iteration but early in the oil sands development, Syncrude and Suncor were cooperating on tailings research. Alan Fair led the Oil Sands Tailings Consortium so there are some interesting insights in this aspect of cooperation among competing companies.
In closing, they summarize what is to come in oil sands tailings.
Alan Fair's keynote address and Al Hyndman's presentation of that keynote were made at the Oil Sands Tailings 2014 Conference, Lake Louise, Alberta, Dec. 8, 2014.
