Energy & Petroleum Building
With a projected increased demand for skilled workers in the oil and gas industry, there’s no better time than now to invest in a facility to train people who will help sustain and advance the petroleum industry.
An opportunity to do more
A power engineering/heavy oil operation technician facility will enable Lakeland College to offer more programming customized to Western Canada’s vital oil and gas industry, such as:
• Third Class Power Engineering
• Expansion of Heavy Oil Operations Technician program from a one-year certificate program to a two-year diploma program
• Petroleum management programming
• Short-term, just-in-time “blended” training to address specific industry needs
The proposed $32 million power engineering/heavy oil operation technician facility will be built at the Lloydminster campus. The first phase to be built will accommodate the addition of Third Class power certification allowing for an immediate increase from 40 students to 160 students combined in the first and second year of the program.
The first phase will cost $15 million and will feature the modernization and expansion of the northeast wing to include:
• Power engineering lab
• Heavy oil operations lab
• Simulation lab
• Gas process lab
• Water testing room
• Operations control room
• Classrooms/lecture theatres
• Student study area
• Instructional office space
The success in the development of the Oil and Gas Training Centre will certainly depend on the creation of many new partnerships that will play a tremendous role in educating and training future students. Lakeland College welcomes the support of corporations, individuals, foundations and organizations that share the belief that a mid-sized, rurallylocated college can play a big role as an economic and social catalyst to support a strong national economy.
