Message from the 2022 Core Conference Committee

Welcome to the 2022 CSPG Core Conference. Planning is underway to hold the conference on June 23rd and 24th 2022 at the Alberta Energy Regulator Core Research Facility.  Like years of past, the conference will take place immediately after the annual GeoConvention.

We are excited to return to an in-person event with a potential online hybrid component, allowing people to connect with each other while enjoying hands-on learning with top tier core in the AER’s flagship core facility. We are committed to ensuring our event allows everyone to meet safely and within the provincial event guidelines.

This year’s theme is “Creating Opportunities and Charting New Horizons.” The two-pronged theme celebrates the resilience of petroleum geoscientists while exploring how we can leverage our skills to find value in new resources and energies. Here in one spot, we can celebrate top tier geotechnical work and innovations within our industry that can position Canada as a resource leader.

This year’s conference will include core presentations from outstanding researchers, oil and gas practitioners, and renewable energy scientists. Please join us in returning to the core of our science by learning from the rocks and from the company of each other.  We are excited to have presentations based on rock from across Western Canada and beyond that encompass enhanced recovery, carbon capture, conventional hydrocarbon reservoirs and new emerging resources. 

We are excited at the prospect of seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones in an environment where ideas are shared and celebrated.  At the end of the final day of the conference, we are planning the return of the Core Meltdown where we can further catch up over the events of the previous two days in a festive environment.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we thank you for your continued support of the conference and the CSPG. Any questions can be sent to [email protected].

We look forward to bringing together Canada’s geoscience community and seeing you in June!
