Our strategy for growth

Laricina is pursuing in situ or drillable oil sands.

Laricina’s overarching corporate objective is to actively develop and manage a diverse portfolio of oil sands assets in Western Canada. We have targeted oil sands opportunities outside of the Athabasca mining area and are focusing on in situ plays that meet our requirements for scale, reservoir quality and proximity to infrastructure.

Laricina has advanced innovative development techniques to capitalize on the huge untapped potential of our in situ resources. Our current focus is on our two core projects at Saleski and  Germain. Please click here to read about our operations strategy.

The key principles of Laricina’s corporate strategy are:

  • Develop exploration projects internally, and focus on understanding the reservoir;
  • Extend reservoir knowledge and technological enhancements to less understood or less mature assets, including carbonate reservoirs;
  • Firmly establish reservoir delineation of project areas and confirm commercially viable oil sands projects;
  • Move toward commercial scale production at our two core projects; and
  • Establish commercial operations.

Where Energy
Meets Innovation

Laricina is advancing in situ technology and innovation, through its forward thinking approach and practices. Our ideas begin with people whose knowledge is based on years of in situ experience, redefining and shaping several of the processes we are implementing today.
