Kemira Oil & Mining has opened a Research & Development projects laboratory in Alberta, Canada. The laboratory, located on the campus of the University of Alberta, is an extension of Kemira's North American R&D, headquartered in Atlanta.

"This facility demonstrates Kemira's commitment to Alberta and to the research work in the area of water quality and quantity management addressing water consumption, reuse and recycling by the in situ oil sands extraction industry," says Mohan Nair, Senior Manager Oil & Gas R&D.

The new laboratory also provides a technology stage to showcase and demonstrate Kemira's novel solutions to targeted audiences such as the various oil sands producers. In addition, the new site supports Kemira's regional growth in the conventional oil and gas marketplace, for example stimulation, drilling and cementing.

Kemira Oil & Mining offers a large selection of chemical extraction and process solutions for the oil and mining industries, where water plays a central role.
