“There are many benefits that Suncor has received from the small amount of funds that are paid to participate in the RIFTS group. Members include Producers from the offshore, SAGD and land-based operations throughout the world. If we had to individually pay consultants to do this work, it would be far more expensive. To be totally honest, I think that the RIFTS group has helped Suncor to increase its system run lives over several years.  It has definitely been money well spent.”

John Graham

“The presentation shown in the RIFTS workshop was by far the best in terms of data quality and depth.”
