Laricina’s operations strategy includes the following principles:

Laricina is pursuing in situ or drillable oil sands.
  • Pursue opportunities in less mature, underdeveloped and less competitive areas of Alberta’s oil sands region;
  • Focus on in situ development to lever technology advancements and reduce threshold scale, capital requirements and environmental footprint;
  • Adopt practices and methodologies that create efficiencies in plant design and construction;
  • Work to achieve commercially viable carbonate production model in order to access a vast, undeveloped resource;
  • Maintain high working interests and operational control of projects;
  • Work continually on advancing in situ technologies, pursue technical excellence internally, and internalize outside technology advancements, in order to maximize chances of success, productivity, resource recoveries, economics and environmental protection;
  • Apply technologies and processes that reduce capital intensity and/or operating costs per barrel recovered;
  • Minimize environmental footprint and work to achieve environmental improvements;
  • Prepare and submit thorough, rigorous, technically excellent regulatory applications;
  • Engage local communities, including through hiring of local contractors, in order to demonstrate benefits of oil sands development to area residents and reduce risks of project disruption.

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.
