OCHS_11026_CQU (Miguel Santana) Scoop-It 's curator insight, March 26, 2015 3:11 AM

OCHS_11026_CQU (Miguel Santana) Scoop-It insights:

 Currently, there is not a clear legislative regulation for this type of oil wells. I believe that the resources industry has the moral and environmental obligations including the financial obligation  to return to their original condition (or close to that) all the work sites they use. This should be included as part of their OHS and Environmental responsibilities. We need more environmentally responsible regulations and the appropriate laws to enforce them.

Most Albertans know that the provincial government has made a $2 billion commitment to the development of carbon capture and storage technology – one of the largest commitments of public funds in the world in order to lower global greenhouse gas emissions
Organic Social Media's insight:

Most Albertans know that the #ABGov provincial government has made a $2 billion commitment to the development of carbon capture and storage technology – one of the largest commitments of public funds in the world in order to lower global greenhouse gas emissions.

But most are likely unaware of a parallel initiative. Alberta’s not-for-profit Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC) collects $70 million a year from North America’s first "carbon tax".  If industry emitters exceed pre-determined intensity limits, they have a choice of pursuing other "off-set" options, or simply paying a $15 per excess CO2 tonne penalty. The funds are directed to industry/university research grants to encourage further development of new carbon-reducing technologies.  (The carbon tax levy is currently under provincial review.)

Liberals vow 'cleanest LNG', then redefine 'cleanest' twice via @Pembina #bcpoli

Liberals vow 'cleanest LNG', then redefine 'cleanest' twice via @Pembina #bcpoli | Technology to improve Mining, Oil and Gas Industries | Scoop.it
“A promise made. A promise kept.” That’s been a main message from the B.C. Liberals celebrating the one-year anniversary of their 2013 election victory. But when it comes to their promise to produce the “cleanest liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the world,” a better phrase might be “A promise made. A promise redefined.”

BP oil spill linked to faulty "blowout preventer"

BP oil spill linked to faulty "blowout preventer" | Technology to improve Mining, Oil and Gas Industries | Scoop.it
A faulty blowout preventer - a device that acts as a last line of defense to stop leaks - was to blame in the BP oil spill.
Organic Social Media's insight:

The cause of the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has been determined. The Washington Post reported that a faulty blowout preventer - a device that acts as a last line of defense to stop leaks - is to blame. The Deepwater Horizon rig sank as a result, killing 15 people and starting a leak that lasted for 87 days.
