Popular Projects Update Seminar Back Again at Oil Sands Conference 
TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/13 -- Keeping multi-billion
dollar oil sands development projects on budget and on schedule is a
major challenge. Producers face the realities of, long distances and
remote locations, a tight labour market and stiff competition for
materials and equipment. The obstacles are significant and as an
industry it's important to hear what's working and what isn't. That's
why the Projects Update seminar will again be standing room only at
the annual Oil Sands and Heavy Oil Technologies Conference &
Exhibition July 23-25 at the Calgary TELUS Centre in Calgary. 
The Projects Update session provides delegates with the latest
developments on some of the most significant projects taking place in
the oil sands. Leaders from five companies will provide updates

others are fairing. "This seminar gives our delegates the inside
story on how some of the industry's biggest projects are doing and
there are always lessons to learn about what's working and what
isn't," adds Tippee.
