Peace Oil Sands Conference And Trade Show Ramps Up
Energy and mining industry types are gathering at the Belle Petroleum Centre in Peace River over the next couple of days, talking about common challenges in the sector and other issues.
The second annual Peace Oil Sands Conference and Trade Show is a pretty big draw.
Mathieu Bergeron is the Economic Development Officer for Northern Sunrise County: He says it's important to make sure industry and neighbouring communities have a good understanding of one another.
"In the Grande Prairie area you're probably a bit like us as well where people keep imagining the Fort McMurray mines. Everything here out is in situ it's not as big a development. It's a great opportunity for everyone to go out there, as questions and kind of demystify a lot of what's happening out there."
The conference is taking bus loads of delegates to different development sites tomorrow for information tours.
A full roster of speakers is set for Thursday.
