Laricina and partners awarded $16.5 million funding grant by Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation for ESEIEH in situ extraction technology

A new in situ oil sands extraction process – the ESEIEH (Enhanced Solvent Extraction Incorporating Electromagnetic Heating) project – has been accepted for funding in the amount of $16.5 million by the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation (CCEMC). ESEIEH, pronounced “easy,” is a collaborative initiative aimed at mitigating emissions and environmental impact. ESEIEH is a conceptual technology that displaces steam in the in situ recovery process, reducing the need for water sourcing and handling as well as field site burning of fossil fuels to generate steam. Burning natural gas to produce steam is currently the major source of emissions for oil sands recovery.
