Suncor Energy Inc., Imperial Oil Limited, Сenovus Energy Inc. 2023Q3 Production activity results

30.12.2023

Aenert news. Energy CompaniesCanada is one of the five largest oil producing countries in the world, if we consider production of synthetic crude oil, which is a product of enrichment of oil sands. At the same time, oil sands form the basis of Canada's vast oil reserves, which exceed 160 billion barrels. This significantly increases the operating costs as compared to conventional oil...

Graphite: resources, production and prospects

17.11.2023

Aenert news. Energy resources and infrastructureToday, graphite has become the most discussed item among the so-called "critical" materials for future development purposes. This is not unexpected, as a number of experts have long been signaling the growing imbalance between production and demand for graphite. Nevertheless, after China imposed restrictions on exports of a number of the important graphite grades...

„Huff & Puff“ Geothermal Fracking for improved Energy Storage

28.10.2023

Aenert. Research Laboratory newsGeothermal energy is a type of renewable power which is found deep underneath the Earth. Other than wind and solar power, geothermal power does not require large surface facilities or produce harmful CO2 emissions. Traditional geothermal plants use water from reservoirs located deep underground to power turbines which then generate electricity. However, this...

2023 Global Gas Flaring Tracker Report: 139 billion m3 gas flared during 2022

18.05.2023

Aenert news. Energy resources and infrastructureThe World Bank, in its the 2023 Gas Flaring Tracker Report, states that global gas flaring decreased by about 3% in 2022. Given that gas flaring has remained virtually unchanged over the past 10 years, this reduction is some progress. However, experts stress the need for greater efforts to end this wasteful and polluting practice. In addition, the report's troubling...
