Cenovus and Partners Studying SMRs

Cenovus, TC Energy and Alberta Innovates recently released a study on the feasibility of using small modular nuclear reactors (SMR) in SAGD operations. The study is an early first step to see if this promising technology can be part of our long term solutions to reducing emissions from our operations. While there is currently no project anticipated this study will start to frame the discussion of what is possible. Read the study here.
