Talking chemicals in Canada’s Rockies


Even with scenery like this sometimes you have to think petrochemicals. The CERI (Canadian Energy Research Institute) annual petrochemicals conference has been held at the Delta Lodge in Kananaskis, Alberta, for the past few years. ICIS’ Nigel Davis arrived there on Sunday ready to give a paper about new developments in the Middle East.


Nigel doesn’t play golf so he missed putting through the snow but those that did on Sunday will remember the experience. He hiked up a mountain for a while before being beaten back by the blizzard – in June!


The Rockies are awe inspiring and a fine backdrop for talk about just how Alberta might develop its petrochemicals advantage.


The feedstock potential in this part of the world (well, a few hundred kilometres north of here) is huge but the province has to decide how it can best use the resources nature has bestowed upon it.
