Bitumen: The people, performance and passions behind Alberta’s oil sands

Bitumen: The people, performance and passions behind Alberta’s oil sands
Event on 2017-09-11 14:00:00
Please join us for the launch of Peter McKenzie-Brown’s comprehensive history of Alberta’s oil sands, which covers the last three centuries.. Peter’s book is the story of the world’s second-largest petroleum resource. The book speculates about oil sand encounters with the oils sands by Indigenous peoples, but the known story begins in 1715, with Hudson’s Bay Company reports. The cover photo shows the Bitumount oil sands plant, which bravely tried to make an oil sands mine profitable during the Great Depression, when an international cartel kept oil prices artificially low. The focus of the author’s remarks will be the development of Canada’s largest petroleum company. To whet your appetite, please read petroleum historian Earle Gray’s foreword by clicking on this link. Don’t forget to whet your appetite at the September 11th book launch, too. Peter’s other books include Footprints: The Evolution of Land Conservation and Reclamation in Alberta (2016, with Robert Bott and Graham Chandler); Barbecues, Booms and Blogs: Fifty Years of Public Relations in Calgary (2008; co-editor and contributor); In Balance: An Account of Alberta’s CA Profession (2000, with Stacy Phillips); The Richness of Discovery: Amoco’s First Fifty Years in Canada (1998); and The Great Oil Age: The Petroleum Industry in Canada (1993, with Gordon Jaremko and David Finch.)
