Lethbridge Branch Lunch 'n Learn: Parking Meter Replacement Project & Traffic Signal Operations in Lethbridge

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join Jinsong Qi, P.Eng., and Dr. Ahmed Ali, P.Eng., as they discuss traffic signal operations and replacing the parking meters in the city of Lethbridge.

Register by January 20, 2019

Many residents and engineers wonder why the City of Lethbridge is not using SMART technologies to make traffic signals smarter. Jinsong Qi, P.Eng., will introduce some “new” detection technologies in Lethbridge, such as 4-cameras video system, 4-radar system, single 360-dome camera, and thermal detectors. With these detectors’ inputs, what is the current standard (or better) practice to do signal timing using today’s “modern” signal controllers (brain) – the control logistics? Are there opportunities for improvements?

Jinsong will also explain why the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) in Canada and USA is promoting “modern roundabouts” as a viable alternative, which “can be better than traffic signals”. Some of us have experienced or heard about modern roundabouts being more efficient than traffic signals, but few know there are fewer severe injuries or fatal collisions, when compared to traffic signals. 

There are over 1,526 metered parking stalls and approximately 396 unmetered/time restricted parking stalls in downtown Lethbridge.

Most of parking meters in Lethbridge have reached or exceeded their lifespan, and maintenance of the current parking meters continues to be a growing challenge. An upgrade of the system was needed to fulfill the changing needs of the users as well as to improve the efficiency of Parking Operations.

Walker Parking Consultants were retained to undertake a technical study and provide evaluation and recommendation with regard to the parking technology for Lethbridge. Also, a number of internal Technical Committee meetings, review meetings with external stake holders, and two public engagement sessions were undertaken as part of this project. Based on the results of the technical study and evaluation, as well asstakeholder and public inputs, a hybrid option consisting of Pay-by-Plate Multi-Space Machines (MSMs) with License Plate Recognition (LPR) enforcement and Single Space Smart Meters (SSSMs) at accessible parking spaces and isolated locations with foot patrol enforcement was recommended; installation is currently in progress. Newer payment methods – such as pay by credit card and pay by cell phone – are also planned to be implemented with this change. Dr, Ahmed Ali, P.Eng., will provide an overview of this process with particular emphasis on technology options and public and stakeholder engagement.

About the Presenters

Jinsong Qi, P.Eng., MASc., has been working as a Traffic Signal Engineer with the City of Lethbridge since 2008. Before moving to Lethbridge, Jinsong worked 8 years with the City of Santa Barbara, California, managing a mini-Traffic Management Center and was responsible for the operation of approximately 120 traffic signals as well as oversight of the city’s pavement markings and signs. He also had first-hand experience working on the first multi-lane modern roundabout since the year 2000 while in California. His earlier work with a consultant exposed him to signal safety and operations in numerous cities in BC, Alberta, Ontario, and Michigan.

Dr. Ahmed Ali, P.Eng., is currently the Transportation Engineering Manager at the City of Lethbridge. In this role, he manages transportation planning and city's traffic and parking operations. Ahmed is a professional engineer registered in Alberta, and the State of Maryland. He is also a professional traffic operations engineer. Prior to moving to Lethbridge in January 2009, Ahmed worked for Watt Consulting Group in Calgary and Parsons Brinckerhoff International in the Middle East.

Calgary Branch AGM & Luncheon: Energy Outlook for Oil Sands

11:15 am - 1:00 pm

Join the APEGA Calgary Branch for their Annual General Meeting, Election of the new Branch Executive, and a talk from Ben Brunnen from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers on the energy outlook for the oil sands.

Register by January 20, 2019

This luncheon will begin with the APEGA Calgary Branch Annual General Meeting (AGM), where branch business will be discussed and the new branch executive will be elected.

The Canadian upstream oil and gas industry is being confronted with a number of challenges that could potentially threaten its long term viability. Market access, international competition for capital, and government policy all play a role. Upstream oil and gas investment declined in 2018, and this trend is expected to continue in the near future. Oil sands investment in particular declined for the fourth consecutive year. This presentation will explore these issues and their underlying dynamics, with a view to what we can expect in the year ahead. This presentation will also offer ideas and potential options to address these challenges. 

About the Presenter

Ben is responsible for a wide range of technical, regulatory, and fiscal policy issues facing Canada’s oil sands industry, where he advocates for a competitive, safe, and environmentally and socially responsible energy industry. 

Prior to joining CAPP, Ben was an independent policy and economic consultant, and also served as the Director of Policy and Chief Economist with the Calgary Chamber of Commerce. Ben has published and consulted in the areas of energy policy, municipal finance, labour policy, and economic forecasting.

CAPP represents companies, large and small, that explore for, develop, and produce natural gas and crude oil throughout Canada. CAPP’s member companies produce about 85 per cent of Canada’s natural gas and crude oil. CAPP's associate members provide a wide range of services that support the upstream crude oil and natural gas industry. Together, CAPP's members and associate members are an important part of the national industry with revenues from oil and natural gas production of about $120 billion a year. CAPP’s mission, on behalf of the Canadian upstream oil and gas industry, is to advocate for and enable economic competitiveness and safe, environmentally and socially responsible performance.

Thinking Outside The Box; Creative Thinking Skills

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Thinking differently and being truly creative is difficult in today’s fast-paced, risk-intolerant and capital-constrained environment. We often hear leaders ask their staff to "think outside the box" more. Leaders at all levels can help foster learning and innovation. This workshop will provide you with the practical tools to "see" problems as opportunities and let go of the old ways of dealing with them by using new thinking tools.

Thinking differently and being truly creative is difficult in today’s fast-paced, risk-intolerant, and capital-constrained environment. We often hear leaders ask their staff to "think outside the box" more. Leaders at all levels can help foster learning and innovation. This workshop will provide you with the practical tools to "see" problems as opportunities and let go of the old ways of dealing with them by using new thinking tools.

What will be covered? We start by trying to understand how the educational system and other life factors can shape our thinking patterns and lead to incremental or familiar change that is not innovative. You will uncover your unique blend of preferences and strengths in the four stages of the creative process. Mapping these preferences (creative profiles) can help teams learn to respect and synchronize different thinking and problem solving orientations with their fellow teammates. You will learn to use a three-stage process to find the right question/problem, see the current reality more clearly, and conceptualize ideas that will delight your customers. Most importantly, you will learn to think differently and have fun doing it.

At the conclusion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Articulate why it is so difficult to “think outside the box” when coaching and developing others to be more creative
  • See your own blend of creative strengths in association with others, thereby increasing mutual understanding and collaboration while decreasing conflict from diverse points of view and working styles
  • Develop innovative ideas that create value and differentiation
  • Respectfully challenge conventional business practices
  • Flex your problem solving style for the associated stage in the innovation process
  • Understand what fosters and impedes innovation and risk taking in organizations

Calgary Branch PD Evening: Do You Really Know Where Your Data (and Wells) are Located?

5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The oil and gas industry faces issues with the positional accuracy of well locations and seismic surveys. Understanding location errors can minimize the risk on many factors from reserve estimates to future well locations. Find out how.

Register by February 3, 2019

This presentation will focus on the issues faced by the oil and gas industry as they pertain to the positional accuracy of seismic surveys and the selection of wellsite locations. There are a great many factors that influence the accuracy of positioning, including survey errors, dominion land survey (DLS) grids, and datum errors (NAD27/NAD83).

The presentation will address in the following topics:

DLS Grids (The Township System)

  • A history of the township system
  • The evolution of the digital grids of Western Canada
  • Understanding the errors and risks involved

Datums (NAD27/NAD83)

  • A history of datums and ellipsoids
  • The NAD27 and NAD83 datums of Canada
  • The magnitude of risk in industry

Wellsite Locations

  • Where is my well really located?
  • Mitigating the risk
  • Bart’s theory of survey relativity

The presentation will be delivered in a clear manner that does not require an in-depth understanding of surveying, but instead reflects a desire to eliminate the risk associated with these issues.

About the Presenter

Bart IversonAfter completing his studies in Business Administration at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Bart Iverson headed west seeking the adventure of the oil patch. In 1980, Bart found himself in a camp at Kotcho Lake east of Fort Nelson, B.C., and worked for the next 5 years for Horkoff Surveys, which was based in Calgary, Alberta. During that time, he also attended SAIT and studied seismic surveying from the industry’s best. In the fall of 1985, Bart co-founded Mountaindale Surveys, and he continued his field work for the next 4 years. As family responsibilities took hold, Bart joined Canex Exploration in December 1989 and continued working as a survey supervisor until late 1994, when he co-founded Excalibur Technology. In 1995, Excalibur merged with Gemini to become the Excalibur-Gemini Group, and Bart took up the mantle of VP Operations. In 2003, Excalibur-Gemini was acquired by Divestco Inc., and Bart continued working at Divestco in the role of Director of Geomatics. During his 39-year career, Bart has presented at many industry events, including the CSEG, CSPG, AAPG, CGEF, PPDM, Doodletrain, and Technology Days in Colombia. Beyond these Industry-sponsored events, Bart has also presented over 50 private sessions at oil and gas corporate offices.

Thinking Outside The Box; Creative Thinking Skills

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Thinking differently and being truly creative is difficult in today’s fast-paced, risk-intolerant and capital-constrained environment. We often hear leaders ask their staff to "think outside the box" more. Leaders at all levels can help foster learning and innovation. This workshop will provide you with the practical tools to "see" problems as opportunities and let go of the old ways of dealing with them by using new thinking tools.

Thinking differently and being truly creative is difficult in today’s fast-paced, risk-intolerant, and capital-constrained environment. We often hear leaders ask their staff to "think outside the box" more. Leaders at all levels can help foster learning and innovation. This workshop will provide you with the practical tools to "see" problems as opportunities and let go of the old ways of dealing with them by using new thinking tools.

What will be covered? We start by trying to understand how the educational system and other life factors can shape our thinking patterns and lead to incremental or familiar change that is not innovative. You will uncover your unique blend of preferences and strengths in the four stages of the creative process. Mapping these preferences (creative profiles) can help teams learn to respect and synchronize different thinking and problem solving orientations with their fellow teammates. You will learn to use a three-stage process to find the right question/problem, see the current reality more clearly, and conceptualize ideas that will delight your customers. Most importantly, you will learn to think differently and have fun doing it.

At the conclusion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Articulate why it is so difficult to “think outside the box” when coaching and developing others to be more creative
  • See your own blend of creative strengths in association with others, thereby increasing mutual understanding and collaboration while decreasing conflict from diverse points of view and working styles
  • Develop innovative ideas that create value and differentiation
  • Respectfully challenge conventional business practices
  • Flex your problem solving style for the associated stage in the innovation process
  • Understand what fosters and impedes innovation and risk taking in organizations

Leading Major Capital Projects

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Large engineering and construction projects are complex and of longer duration, presenting greater challenges to busy managers and executives. The long history of staggering cost overruns and delays in project completion offers little assurance that the cost estimates and schedules presented to project executives can be relied upon. The level of uncertainty and volatility associated with major capital projects make a predictable outcome almost impossible to achieve.

Large engineering and construction projects are complex and of longer duration, presenting greater challenges to busy managers and executives. The long history of staggering cost overruns and delays in project completion offers little assurance that the cost estimates and schedules presented to project executives can be relied upon. The level of uncertainty and volatility associated with major capital projects make a predictable outcome almost impossible to achieve.

To help busy leaders, this course proposes the application of a Benevolent Dictatorship on the next wave of major capital projects. Benevolent Dictatorship is a practice in which a demanding leader exercises absolute leadership over an organization and its major capital projects, but does so for the benefit of all members of the organization and the projects in full compliance with legal, moral, and ethical requirements and values. 

Project leaders must act ethically and legally, understand risks, and address the concerns of their stakeholders while overseeing and participating in the delivery of their major capital project.

This course will cover the following subjects:

  • Embrace Uncertainty: classify risks, allocate reserve amounts and assign responsibility for risks.
  • Engage Stakeholders: each consultation and negotiation with a stakeholder can affect how well you deliver your project.
  • Transform Governance: establish a governance structure and advocate ethical behaviour.
  • Fulfill Your Obligations: appreciate your contractual and tort obligations, recognize your claims and disputes obligations, and pursue HSE obligations.
  • Build Relationships: earn trust, gain respect and adopt a collaborative relationship model.
  • Improve Productivity: prepare productivity plan, address productivity issues, incorporate productivity lessons learned, set project-based productivity targets, measure productivity, provide feedback.

When you participate in this session, you will learn how to:

  • Improve major capital project performance
  • Conduct oversight of major capital projects
  • Understand and fulfill senior executives’ obligations

The long history of staggering cost overruns and delays in project completion offers little assurance that the cost estimates and schedules presented to project executives can be relied upon. The level of uncertainty and volatility associated with major capital projects make a predictable outcome almost impossible to achieve.

Large engineering and construction projects are complex and of longer duration, presenting greater challenges to busy managers and executives. The long history of staggering cost overruns and delays in project completion offers little assurance that the cost estimates and schedules presented to project executives can be relied upon. The level of uncertainty and volatility associated with major capital projects make a predictable outcome almost impossible to achieve.

To help busy leaders, this course proposes the application of a Benevolent Dictatorship on the next wave of major capital projects. Benevolent Dictatorship is a practice in which a demanding leader exercises absolute leadership over an organization and its major capital projects, but does so for the benefit of all members of the organization and the projects in full compliance with legal, moral, and ethical requirements and values. 

Project leaders must act ethically and legally, understand risks, and address the concerns of their stakeholders while overseeing and participating in the delivery of their major capital project. 

This course will cover the following subjects:

  • Embrace Uncertainty: classify risks, allocate reserve amounts and assign responsibility for risks.
  • Engage Stakeholders: each consultation and negotiation with a stakeholder can affect how well you deliver your project.
  • Transform Governance: establish a governance structure and advocate ethical behaviour.
  • Fulfill Your Obligations: appreciate your contractual and tort obligations, recognize your claims and disputes obligations, and pursue HSE obligations.
  • Build Relationships: earn trust, gain respect and adopt a collaborative relationship model.
  • Improve Productivity: prepare productivity plan, address productivity issues, incorporate productivity lessons learned, set project-based productivity targets, measure productivity, provide feedback. 

When you participate in this session, you will learn how to:

  • Improve major capital project performance
  • Conduct oversight of major capital projects
  • Understand and fulfill senior executives’ obligations
