Edmonton Branch – Architecture of Upper Cretaceous Faulting

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Learn about the Great Plains Polygonal Fault System, examine its outcrop and subsurface geology, and discuss the potential ramifications for civil engineering in Alberta.

Register by January 19, 2018

Great Plains Polygonal Fault SystemCivil engineering considerations within the Great Plains Polygonal Fault System

The Great Plains Polygonal Fault System is an aerially extensive system of faulting that has been identified in Upper Cretaceous rocks at or near ground surface throughout an area that covers ~2,000,000 km. Faulting ranges from non-existent to faults with up to 80 m of vertical offset as interpreted using seismic data from southeastern Saskatchewan. An examination of outcrop and subsurface geology will be presented to discuss the potential ramifications for civil engineering in Alberta. The main point to be made is that the there is a continuity of pervasive faulting throughout the Great Plains area in fine-grained Upper Cretaceous rock.

The talk will cover many points including:

  • A deposition model for Upper Cretaceous strata in the Great Plains.
  • The cause of the faulting.
  • Variability of strata such as bentonite within the faulted layers.
  • Subsurface fault identification.
  • Examples of faulting throughout the Great Plains area.

Calgary Branch AGM & Luncheon – Project Execution: It’s a Whole New World

11:15 am - 1:30 pm

Join us for the 2018 Calgary Branch AGM, featuring speaker John Myer, P.Eng., Senior Vice President, Oil Sands for Husky Oil Operations Limited.

Register by January 25, 2018

Join us for the 2018 Calgary Branch AGM, featuring speaker John Myer, P.Eng., Senior Vice President, Oil Sands for Husky Oil Operations Limited.

With hundreds of projects big and small under his belt, plus decades of being responsible for production and operations, John Myer has a broader view of the Industry. Project execution has certainly evolved over the past 20 years. Globalization and new technology has introduced new ways of designing, building, managing, constructing and operating new projects. It has also introduced new risks and a need to develop a deep understanding of human differences. Technology has also evolved, allowing industry to continuously improve its environmental stewardship and how they operate.

These continuous developments also present challenges and opportunities to evolve our systematic approach to anticipating, identifying and mitigating hazardous situations into each project. An Operational Integrity Management system is critical to effectively managing the challenges associated with the changing world of project execution to ensure a safe and secure place for people to work and live in the communities where we operate.

Project execution is more than just the pots and pans – it's about the people that design, build and operate them. Diversity of our workforce is a critical consideration that challenges us to truly understand and capitalize on human differences that affect how we communicate and collaborate.

We invite you to join us to hear how Husky's approach to project delivery has evolved to keep up with the changing dynamics of project execution and the global economy and the things we can do after the project is built.

About the Presenter

John Myer, P.Eng.Mr. John Myer, P.Eng., was appointed Vice President, Oil Sands, in November 2010 with responsibilities to develop and operate the Sunrise SAGD asset and advance Husky's portfolio of emerging properties in the oil sands region. In 2012, he was made Senior Vice President.

Prior to his appointment at Husky, he was with Suncor Energy for 20 years in such roles as Vice President InSitu, Vice President Exploration and Development, and Vice President Production. Before moving to the executive level, he held management positions in Acquisitions and Divestments, Reservoir Exploitation, and Exploration. Mr. Myer started his career with Home Oil, where he held technical and supervisory positions in facility design and construction, production, operations, and reservoir engineering for the 12 years he was with the organization.

Mr. Myer holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, a Masters degree in Petroleum Engineering, and a Masters of Business Administration, all from the University of Calgary.

Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis to Discover Latent Causes

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Have you ever gone through an investigation, only to wonder if you’ve found the right causes? Or walk away with a laundry list of action items in the hundreds? Sign up for this session to learn how to uncover the incident causes and explore two methods to rank and manage the actions so owners and clients can make informed decisions for implementation.

Register by February 28, 2018

Organizations experience incidents ranging in severity from the near-miss with no consequences, up to a major loss incident with significant consequences for people – workers and the public, the environment, and business interests (assets, productivity, reputation, and social license). By applying these work processes, you can discover the underlying latent causes so you can identify effective recommendations to prevent a recurrence. This approach is reactive when investigating an incident in one's own facility, yet can be proactive when applied to external events to learn from others.

Discussions Include:

  • incident investigation key points
  • rigorous root cause analysis (no special software needed!)
  • a fresh perspective on the Swiss Cheese Model
  • how to manage the recommendations
  • the positive impact that the effective application of these work processes can have on your organization's safety culture

By participating in this session, you'll receive:

  • A tip-sheet to know when you've uncovered the latent causes in a root cause analysis
  • A tip-sheet for prioritizing and managing the recommendations from the incident investigation
