Chris Holly - Open Data in the energy sector - July 2013

  1. 1. Open Data in the Energy Sector Christopher Holly Research & Technology Alberta Department of Energy July 10, 2013
  2. 2. Alberta’s approach to “open data” • Strong commitment to open data – Open Data Portal  over 280 data sets – Online catalogue  316 data sets. – The public is able to submit requests for data not yet available. • Data is screened for personal or proprietary information • Open license allows unrestricted access • Data topics range from groundwater activity to birth statistics • Many Alberta municipalities have open data sites
  3. 3. Example: Oil sands information portal • Environmental data – climate change (GHG emissions/intensity/compliance) – water quality and quantity (use, water levels, sample analysis) – land disturbance/reclamation, tailings ponds (location & size) – air quality (NPRI reports, monitoring station readings) – Wildlife/conservation (caribou habitat, biodiversity, species at risk • Open data • Big data – Reporting is as frequent as every 15 minutes • Visual – interactive map (information by project site)
  4. 4. Alberta’s energy systems • Resource ownership  Government of Alberta • Development based on competitive markets • Multiple participants • Quasi- judicial regulator (independent from government) – Access to geological data  big & open data • Mineral rights  public auction • Business issues  IP – Versus societal ethical issues “EQUITY”
  5. 5. Alberta’s approach to energy related “open data”  innovation • Highly complex and technical industry – Significant monitoring & reporting requirements • Takes many players to facilitate innovation – Significant levels of collaboration on common issues – Active and extensive industry • Producers (100s) • service industry (1000s) • Research agencies (20+) – Distributed knowledge (2/3 of drilling rigs in NA) • Open data fosters innovation – Government sponsored research  Open IP
  6. 6. Emerging Oil Sands Production Trends - SAGD - 50,000 100,000 150,000 200,000 250,000 2.0 2.5 3.0 3.5 4.0 4.5 5.0 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 BitumenProduction,BPD SOR(Annual) SOR - weighted average trend line Starting Instantaneous SOR: 4.0 - 5.3 2010 Instantaneous SOR: 2.3 – 3.2 2006 Instantaneous SOR: 2.5 – 3.3 Production Trend Line 2010 SOR (Instantaneous) SOR (Cumulative) Foster Creek 2.3 2.5 MacKay River 2.3 2.5 Firebag 3.0 3.3
  7. 7. 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 EU Low EU High Alberta Low Alberta High GHG,gCO2e/MJofFuel(gasoline) FQD Default Value Overlap in EU and Alberta Crude Oil Pathways WTW GHG Emissions for EU and Alberta Crude Pathways EU Pathways (High) *9 EU Feedstock Countries *Includes: Flaring and Venting emissions (90% Flaring Efficiency) EU Pathways (Low) *9 EU Feedstock Countries *Includes: Flaring Emissions Alberta Pathways (High) Mining (Upgraded)* Low Efficiency In-situ (Thermal)** SAGD (SOR 3.0) In Situ (Non-thermal)*** CHOPS, Polymer * Includes: Land-use and flaring ** Includes: Flaring *** Includes: Land-use, flaring and venting emissions Alberta Pathways (Low) In Situ (Non-thermal) CHOPS, Polymer
  8. 8. Concluding observations Energy Industry • Open data fosters – Industry learning  competition Innovation • Improved economics, efficiency, effectiveness – Societal energy literacy  transparency – Betters decisions (policy, business, societal…) • Open data allows specific items to be placed in context General observation • Problem is with the transition – Agree with end state  Winners and losers in the transition
