Slugging It Out is a heavy oil and bitumen focused conference that has been held annually for over 20 years. The primary goal of the conference is to promote continuous improvements to all aspects of project and technology development through the sharing of recent project data, case studies and technical discussion.
In the highly competitive world of oil production, oilsands projects face headwinds on multiple fronts. The Slugging it Out conference provides a unique environment to collaborate with industry professionals and promote the success of all heavy and extra heavy oil projects.
Presentations will focus on project updates, performance and reservoir case studies, new and emerging ideas and technologies, environmental developments, facility design and project economics.
The format of the event encourages open dialogue with the attendees and presenters to maximize knowledge sharing and learning.
The event is jointly put on by Canadian Heavy Oil Association (CHOA) and Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
