Cenovus is the leader in environmentally responsible oilsands production using SAGD technology (Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage) and their Christina Lake complex is the largest of its kind in Alberta. This is a rare opportunity to visit one of the leading oilsands projects in the world and to receive a special guided tour from the senior staff members at Cenovus.

There will be a reasonable fee of $40 per Member ($30 per Student Member) to assist with the cost of the bus and bus driver for the day. All Members and Student Members are welcome to attend. Also, if your class mates are interested in attending, they can talk to me and we can have them enrolled as Student Members and include them on the tour as well.

Please reply with your commitment to attend this special oilsands tour on Saturday May 27th.
