Advanced Ethical Decision Making (Calgary)

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

To develop greater sensitivity to ethical issues, ethical judgement, motivation and take informed and committed ethical action.

Register by October 22, 2019

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. It also requires the motivation to do the right thing. Most difficult of all is the commitment to take action that requires courage, persistence, overcoming obstacles, influencing skills, and personal confidence. In this course, you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

Upon completing this module, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify ethical dilemmas facing APEGA professionals and discuss the personal and organizational obstacles associated with taking ethical action.
  2. Reflect on and develop a deeper level of awareness regarding personal ethical challenges.
  3. Apply critical thinking tools to each step using accounting ethical dilemmas.
  4. Review the four-step model of ethical action developed by James Rest and the challenges inherent in each step:
    • Moral sensitivity
    • Moral judgment
    • Moral intention
    • Moral character
  5. Apply a comprehensive model for ethical decision-making to these dilemmas that include action planning and influence.
  6. Develop a plan to address both personal and organizational challenges associated with ethical decision-making and action-taking.

Lakeland Branch PD Evening: Maximizing the Efficiencies of Crude-By-Rail

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the Lakeland Branch as they welcome Join James Auld, Senior Manager, Corporate Development at CN Rail as he discusses crude-by-rail developments and provides details on the innovative CanaPux project, including the overall concept, technical process, economics and an update on CN’s joint efforts with industry to commercialize the technology.

Register by October 27, 2019

Over the past 10 years, the use of rail to augment and supplement the transportation of crude oil by pipelines has increased. Today, crude-by-rail is an accepted and active part of the midstream transportation portfolio. However, economically moving bitumen within North America and especially to overseas global markets by rail has posed some challenges.

Transportation of heavy crude in pipelines normally involves blending high amounts of diluent in order to meet pipeline viscosity requirements. These requirements are not needed to move crude by rail, and avoiding the addition of diluent can increase netbacks, lower emissions, promote safety, and protect the environment. The lack of diluent can further allow the bitumen to be solidified for transport and later reliquified for use at destination. Solidification is particularly applicable to the extra-heavy range of bitumen and can open up new global markets for this product.

Join James Auld, Senior Manager, Corporate Development, at CN Rail as he discusses crude-by-rail developments and provides details on the innovative CanaPux project, including the overall concept, technical process, economics, and an update on CN's joint efforts with industry to commercialize the technology.

About the Presenter

James Auld joined CN Rail in November 2013 working on strategic initiatives for developing business in Western Canada. This work led to the development of "CanaPux," a process to solidify heavy crude oil for rail transportation and to return it back to a liquid at destination.

Prior to joining CN Rail, Mr. Auld spent over 26 years in the oil-and-gas sector focused on midstream assets such as storage, pipelines, processing, refining, and terminals. Mr. Auld has held key roles in marketing, trading, operations and business development. He holds a masters degree in business administration from Nova Southeastern University, a bachelor of science degree in computer science from the University of Calgary, a Strategic Leadership Certificate from the University of British Columbia, and has completed CN's Railroad MBA program.

Let's Start Talking Again: Helping Leaders Lead Through Communication (Calgary)

9:00 am - 12:30 pm

This workshop will not only give you the keys to better communication, it will include exercises to show you how to communicate better to get you on the right track immediately.

Register by November 13, 2019

We communicate more than we ever have in the past. With email, text, social media, and the internet, many people are constantly telling others what they think and how they feel. But are we really communicating well when it counts? Can we have the kind of face-to-face conversations in the workplace that are needed to move organizations forward?

The biggest problem many organizations have today are difficult conversations that either aren’t being held, or if they are, they aren’t being done very well. The most important thing a leader can do is influence the behaviour of others, and the best and easiest way to provide that influence is through effective communication.

When you participate in this session, you will learn:

  • The importance of leading teams and saying what needs to be said, but doing it without attitude or a big ego
  • Why good listeners are good communicators
  • Ways to control conversations by asking questions
  • How to prepare for and have difficult conversations
  • Tips to communicate more effectively on any situation
  • Ways to improve body language
  • Ways to build “cultures of communication” within organizations

Edmonton Branch Luncheon: Dead Sea Scrolls, Pablo Escobar, and Glaciomarine Clays

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The APEGA Edmonton Branch invites you to hear Paul Bauman, P.Eng., P.Geoph., discuss the background, technical challenges, and outcomes of notable archaeological investigations. Besides describing the intriguing geoscience scenarios of each of the site investigations, Paul will clearly describe why the findings are important and of inherent interest to a wide audience.

Register by November 13, 2019

Since 1990, Paul Bauman has carried out and directed near-surface geophysical exploration programs on 6 continents. Some of his notable archaeological investigations have included exploring for Dead Sea Scroll Caves, gas chambers of the Sobibor Nazi extermination camp, a Holocaust escape tunnel in Lithuania dug by the "Burning Brigade," Second World War mass burials, a first century bath house in Nazareth, the mythological ancient city of Atlantis, and the tomb of Jesus in Jerusalem on the property of Joseph of Arimathea. Recent locations of water resource exploration programs for humanitarian relief have included the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh, the massive Kakuma Refugee Camp in the Turkana desert of Kenya, and the villages of Northern Uganda destroyed by Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army.

Some of the more significant geophysical targets in Western Canada have included mapping geohazards in glaciomarine clays and waste rock dumps, imaging the interior of earth-filled dams, the direct detection and mapping of oil sand and shallow gas deposits, and the mapping of natural saline discharge zones along the entire reach of the Athabasca River through the oil sands deposits. A number of these programs have been featured in television and movie documentaries, books, a Discovery Channel “reality” television series about hunting for the hidden cash, arms, emeralds, and drugs of Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Cartel, and even an off-Broadway play.

In this talk, Paul will briefly discuss the background, technical challenges, and outcomes of a few of these investigations. Besides describing the intriguing geoscience scenarios of each of the site investigations, Paul will clearly describe why the findings are important and of inherent interest to the wider audiences of PBS NOVA, the New York Times, Time magazine, National Geographic, and APEGA.

Calgary Branch Luncheon: Application of DNA Sequencing Technology in the Oil and Gas Industry

11:15 am - 1:00 pm

Join Carmen Li and the APEGA Calgary Branch to learn how the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Calgary is using DNA sequencing to pioneer a new understanding of the microbiome of petroleum systems.

Register by November 17, 2019

Microbial activity in petroleum systems presents both challenges and opportunities. Negative consequences can include challenges like reservoir souring and corrosion or biogenic gas emissions from tailings ponds. However, microbiological success stories can also be found, including problem-solving applications such as bioremediation of tailings ponds, oil spills, or reservoir souring, as well as new opportunities such as enhanced oil recovery or bioprospecting in oil and gas exploration.

For the petroleum industry, the naturally-occurring microbial processes in upstream and downstream operations can be exploited or impeded for improved returns. This requires a closer examination of the microbes in petroleum environments. In recent years, strategies for studying these microbes have transitioned towards DNA sequencing, a rapid and highly-sensitive technique that generates massive amounts of data and results in an increased understanding of the complexities of microbial community dynamics within these environments.

The Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Calgary is using DNA sequencing to pioneer new understanding of the microbiome of these petroleum systems. This presentation will include examples related to tailings pond reclamation and management, oil spill bioremediation, microbiological oil exploration, and biotechnology for lowering the steam-to-oil ratio during SAGD.

About the Presenter

carmen liCarmen Li received a masters of science in Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology in 2010 from the University of Alberta. Carmen continued working in the same research group, led by Professor Julia Foght, for several years applying molecular microbiology methods to reclamation and bioremediation of oil sands tailings ponds by stimulating the activity of in-situ microbial communities to accelerate tailings densification.

In 2014, Carmen joined the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Calgary to work with Casey Hubert as a research scientist and lab manager. Carmen’s research has focused on using detection of specific microbial DNA signatures as a tool for deep sea offshore oil and gas exploration, while also providing supervision to other group members applying DNA sequencing and other genomics approaches to oil spill bioremediation, reservoir souring and corrosion control, environmental baseline mapping using microbial diversity, and tight unconventional reservoir characterization. Carmen manages and operates the group's in-house Illumina MiSeq platform that provides DNA sequencing services for internal and external clients, including oil industry collaborators.

Let's Start Talking Again: Helping Leaders Lead Through Communication (Edmonton)

9:00 am - 12:30 pm

This workshop will not only give you the keys to better communication, it will include exercises to show you how to communicate better to get you on the right track immediately.

Register by November 26, 2019

We communicate more than we ever have in the past. With email, text, social media, and the internet, many people are constantly telling others what they think and how they feel. But are we really communicating well when it counts? Can we have the kind of face-to-face conversations in the workplace that are needed to move organizations forward?

The biggest problem many organizations have today are difficult conversations that either aren’t being held, or if they are, they aren’t being done very well. The most important thing a leader can do is influence the behaviour of others, and the best and easiest way to provide that influence is through effective communication.

When you participate in this session, you will learn:

  • The importance of leading teams and saying what needs to be said, but doing it without attitude or a big ego
  • Why good listeners are good communicators
  • Ways to control conversations by asking questions
  • How to prepare for and have difficult conversations
  • Tips to communicate more effectively on any situation
  • Ways to improve body language
  • Ways to build “cultures of communication” within organizations

Calgary Branch PD Evening: Variances, Application, and Updates of Gas Code Regulation

5:30 pm - 8:45 pm

Join the APEGA Calgary Branch to learn about the 2020 versions of the CSA B149 gas codes adopted by regulation in Alberta.

Register by December 1, 2019

The 2020 versions of the B149 gas codes adopted by regulation in Alberta are anticipated for publication on or about January 2020. In Alberta, automatic code adoption has been established for the gas codes, and they are anticipated for enforcement approximately 12 months from the date of publication.

There have been significant changes in the codes that have involved substantial relocation and editing of all of the referenced codes. Additions to the code primarily address challenges that involve new technologies, complex projects, and new ways of applying codes within residential, commercial, and industrial installations. There has also been the introduction of some objective based processes through annexes.

Additional challenges that involve the required approval of uncertified gas-fired equipment through the use of certification bodies, inspection bodies, and now engineers with the authentication variance issued July 2019 will be discussed.

Calgary Branch Luncheon: Creating Value from Waste in Alberta’s Oil Sands

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The treatment of oil sands tailings is one of the most difficult environmental and operational challenges facing the mining oil sands sector. This presentation will describe the Creating Value from Waste technology and its benefits and provide an overview of the development pathway.

Register by December 8, 2019

The treatment of oil sands tailings is one of the most difficult environmental and operational challenges facing the mining oil sands sector. Tailings from the secondary extraction froth treatment (FT) process contain lost bitumen, solvent, and valuable minerals. The release of the hydrocarbons to ponds results in methane and volatile organic compound emissions. Titanium Corporation’s patented suite of Creating Value from Waste (CVW) technologies—a trademarked process described as transformational by Canadian Natural Resources Limited—are designed to intercept FT tailings as they exit facilities, recover and recycle the lost hydrocarbons, improve the quality of the residual tailings for remediation, recover the minerals, and create a new minerals export industry for Alberta.

Titanium Corporation and Canadian Natural Resources Limited recently completed front-end engineering design for implementation of CVW at the Horizon site and are now working toward project sanctioning. The Canadian and Alberta governments have been highly supportive of the development of Titanium’s technologies, providing $20 million of grant funding to date and recently announcing a further $50 million toward the commercial project at Horizon.

This presentation will describe the CVW technology and its benefits and provide an overview of the development pathway.

About the Presenter

Scott NelsonScott Nelson is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Titanium Corporation, an Alberta-based company that has developed Creating Value From Waste (CVW) technology, which is designed to recover valuable lost commodities from oil sands waste tailings streams and reduce environmental impacts. A significant new minerals export industry will be created to meet growing world demand for zircon and titanium. Scott assembled and led the Titanium Team through research and development and demonstration piloting to the completion in 2019 of site-specific engineering to bring this game-changing technology to the market place.

Prior to joining Titanium Corporation in 2005, Scott held senior executive positions in the energy and technology industries in Canada and internationally, including president of Hess Corporation’s Canadian business unit, chairman of London-based Eurosov Energy PLC, and senior management roles with IBM Canada, Amoco Petroleum, Dome Petroleum, and Irving.
