SIMSA Energy Forum

Geothermal energy development, as seen here on Aug. 30 south of Torquay, is one of the topics being discussed at SIMSA’s Energy Forum on Oct. 6. Helium and lithium development are also being discussed, in addition to oil and gas. This is Panther Drilling Rig 2.

The Saskatchewan Industrial and Mining Suppliers Association (SIMSA) will be holding its Energy Forum virtually on Oct. 6.

Along with the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show in Weyburn, the Lloydminster Heavy Oil Show, and the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference, SIMSA’s event has become one of the key conferences for the Saskatchewan energy industry. The difference is those other events are held every two years, while SIMSA’s is usually every October.

The event used to be called the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Supply Chain Forum, and was held in Regina in early October for the last several years. However, like almost every other event, the 2020 date was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s event was originally planned to be in-person, but rising COVID-19 numbers and restrictions led to it being switched to a virtual format.

The event will allow participants to hear from procurement persons and executives from energy sector companies on their capital plans. Participating companies often have some of the largest capital outlays in the sector, and their speakers usually go into depth on how suppliers can take part.

SIMSA executive director Eric Anderson said, “Our sector must keep moving and adapting to an everchanging world. Our event format revisions reflects this.”

Participating companies making presentation will include Crescent Point Energy Corp., one of Saskatchewan’s largest oil producers.

Geothermal power pioneer Deep Earth Energy Production Corp (DEEP) is continuing to develop its green energy project south of Torquay. Royal Helium has an active drilling program in southwest and southeast. Prairie Lithium recently spudded a lithium brine well near Torquay as well.

There will also be a presentation on small modular reactor procurement. Opening remarks will come from Minister of Energy and Resources Bronwyn Eyre.

Those who have already purchased an in-person ticket will be refunded $100 (the price difference between in-person and virtual ticket). Registration is available online and can be done here.
