The Rimbey Regional Synergy Group holds regular bi-monthly meetings to hear updates on local industry activities, discuss local activity impacts and opportunities, and to share information about industry related practices in general. These meetings are also a great opportunity for industry reps to learn more about the agricultural practices and implications to the landowners in the local community.
Presentations on topics of local interest are regularly a part of the meetings as well. Most recent presentation topics have included play-based regulations, landowner negotiation and related rights, well-bore cementing and aquifer protection.
The March 19 regular meeting’s presentation topic will be focused on pipeline construction. A representative from Redcore, one of the group’s member companies, will give an overview from a construction perspective and be there to answer questions as well.
A regular component of the meetings has companies that operate in the area provide information on their current and planned activities and answer questions that folks may have regarding their operations. This is also a great opportunity for local residents and landowners to connect with the industry reps to let them know about local community events and initiatives that might be of interest.
Meeting attendance typically includes landowners and community residents, local county representatives, local industry companies, local businesses and the Alberta Energy regulator. Meetings are held in Bluffton on the third Thursday of every second month, January through November. There is no meeting in July, but the group typically hosts a large Open House event in June.
Meetings start with lunch and are open to the public. An RSVP is appreciated to help plan for the lunch. For more information contact the group’s facilitator at 403-847-8086 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
