IF I might add a thought concerning this potential cash cow......

large scale developement of the oilsands will only become feasable when new pipelines are laid to transport the oil to the west coast where it can be shipped to NEW MARKETS.currently the oil goes south to the chicgo area where there are "heavey oil" refineries...these refineries are already working at full capacity....at the moment any increase in production would have nowhere to go. apperently,as a result this oil is sold at a 20 dollar discount to light crude.
currently Enbridge(ENB) is trying to build one such pipeline......completion is progected around 2009

wheather or not it will be built will be decided in early 2006

Enbridge Files Preliminary Information Package for Gateway Project

NOV 2, 2005 - 07:30 ET

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 2, 2005) - Gateway Pipeline Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) (NYSE:ENB), has filed a Preliminary Information Package (PIP) with the National Energy Board, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and other federal departments.

The PIP provides detailed information on the major elements of the Gateway Project as of October 2005. It is intended to inform potentially interested parties, and to permit federal regulators to define the regulatory review process to satisfy the requirements of the National Energy Board and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency.

A PIP filing does not constitute an application for regulatory approval. Such an application is planned for 2006, subject to the achievement of commercial feasibility, including satisfactory shipper commitments, as well as successful completion of engineering, environmental planning, and public and Aboriginal consultation. This timing would permit construction to commence in 2008 and the pipelines to begin service in 2010.

The Gateway Project is estimated to cost approximately $4 billion and will consist of a petroleum export pipeline and a condensate import pipeline along the same right-of-way, and a marine terminal.

The Gateway Petroleum Export Pipeline project will involve a new 1150-km (715-mile) 30-inch diameter pipeline with an initial capacity of approximately 400,000 barrels per day to transport petroleum from Edmonton to Kitimat. The Gateway Condensate Import Pipeline will be a 20-inch diameter pipeline capable of initially transporting approximately 150,000 barrels per day from Kitimat to Edmonton.

Enbridge Inc., a Canadian company, is a leader in energy transportation and distribution in North America and internationally. As a transporter of energy, Enbridge operates, in Canada and the U.S., the world's longest crude oil and liquids transportation system. The Company also has international operations and a growing involvement in the natural gas transmission and midstream businesses. As a distributor of energy, Enbridge owns and operates Canada's largest natural gas distribution company, and provides distribution services in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and New York State. Enbridge employs approximately 4,400 people, primarily in Canada, the U.S. and South America. Enbridge's common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange in Canada and on the New York Stock Exchange in the U.S. under the symbol ENB. Information about Enbridge is available on the Company's web site at www.enbridge.com.

Certain information provided in this news release constitutes forward-looking statements. The words "anticipate", "expect", "project", "estimate", "forecast" and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Although Enbridge believes that these statements are based on information and assumptions that are current, reasonable and complete, these statements are necessarily subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties pertaining to operating performance, regulatory parameters, weather, economic conditions and commodity prices. You can find a discussion of those risks and uncertainties in our Canadian securities filings and American SEC filings. While Enbridge makes these forward-looking statements in good faith, should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary significantly from those expected. Enbridge assumes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements made herein or otherwise, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON THE ENBRIDGE GATEWAY PROJECT

- The Gateway Project, estimated to cost approximately $4 billion, involves the proposed development of two new pipelines, a new marine terminal, tankage, pumping stations and related facilities.

- The Gateway Project will run from Strathcona County near Edmonton to Kitimat, British Columbia.

- Key factors in the decision to select Kitimat as the end-site location for the pipeline were the deep-water port and abundant industrial land.

- The pipeline will be 1150 kilometres in length.

- The petroleum export pipeline will be 30-inches in diameter and designed to move an average of 400,000 barrels per day.

- The condensate import pipeline will be 20-inches in diameter and designed to move an average of 150,000 barrels per day.

- Condensate is a by-product of natural gas production and is used as feedstock to oil refineries but its primary use in Western Canada is to dilute heavy oil for easier transport by pipeline.

- Certified marine tankers will be used to either import condensate or export petroleum. The marine terminal will include tankage, emergency response equipment, tanker births and other related facilities.

- Enbridge anticipates filing the National Energy Board application for the Gateway Project in the second quarter of 2006, beginning construction in 2008 and having the pipeline operational in 2010.

- The socio-economic benefits during construction of the project are estimated at $1.52 billion in BC and $1.26 billion in Alberta.

- During the operation of the Gateway Project, the socio-economic benefits are estimated at $107 million per year in BC and $60 million per year in Alberta.

- The Gateway Project is an important part of Canada's energy future and will help ensure there is enough capacity to transport new oil expected from Canada's oil sands in the years to come.

and on the mineral exploitation possibilities of BMD .....(BMD owns extensive mineral rights for deposits under the oilsands)
Mineral Potential Summaries
Prairie-type Microdisseminated Gold Mineralization:
A New Deposit Type In Manitoba's Phanerozoic Rocks
A new deposit type In Manitoba's Phanerozoic Rocks Microdisseminated "Prairie-type" Au mineralization has been identified in Devonian carbonate rocks in west-central Manitoba (Mafeking-Swan River area) (NTS 63C/14). Tectonic reactivation of the Churchill-Superior Boundary Zone and dissolution of the Prairie Evaporite are viewed as critical for the structural preparation of host rocks and as a mechanism for oxygenated Cl-rich saline brine transport of metals to their present locations, respectively. Gold mineralization occurs as <5 micron-sized grains associated with bitumen in massive to concentrically laminated siliceous sinter within pipe-shaped solution chimneys interpreted to represent focused, paleo-brine discharge sites. In addition to gold, hematite, marcasite, jarosite, alloys of Au-Cu-Ag, Fe-Cr-Ni, Cr-Ni, Ni-Cu, Cu-Zn, Cu-Zn-Ni and native Ag, Ni, Zn, Sn, Pb and Bi have been identified. Associated minerals include barite, monazite, celestite, rutile, zircon and sylvite. Sideritic carbonate rims the solution chimneys and hosts microdisseminated chalcopyrite, marcasite, hawleyite/greenockite, Ni phosphate, Cd carbonate, hematite, Cu-Zn alloy and native Ag, Ni, Cu, Sb and Pb. Related minerals include barite, monazite, zircon, and calcium bromide. Nearby present-day saline brine pools are characterized by single and multiple vents or chimneys that are actively precipitating base and precious metal-enriched sulphide minerals.

These chimneys are viewed as possible modern day analogues of the solution chimneys exposed in the Mafeking quarry.

An independant mineralogical and geochemical study undertaken in the Department of Geological Sciences, University of Manitoba has confirmed the nature of the mineralization and describes textural and mineralogical components of the solution chimneys.

Using Limestone for Cleaner Air

Teaching an Old Stone New Tricks:

by Deborah Galyan

What's bad for Indiana's coal industry may be good for its limestone business. Changes in United States environmental policy have stringently restricted sulfur dioxide emissions caused by coal combustion, resulting in an increased use of low sulfur Western coals. But limestone is the key component in what has become the standard technology for cleaning sulfur dioxide from smokestacks. Wet limestone "scrubbers" use limestone slurries--mixtures of water and very finely crushed limestone--to prevent sulfur dioxide from passing through smokestacks, a process called "flue gas desulfurization." The scrubber mechanism doesn't exactly scrub; a rapid chemical reaction between sulfur dioxide gas and crushed limestone combines the gas, with calcium and oxygen, into a removable solid waste. Wet scrubbers installed in smokestacks are highly efficient and easily adaptable to a variety of coal-burning plants. Utilities and industries are likely to install many more scrubbers over the next few years as they work toward total compliance with the Clean Air Act mandate of a 50 percent reduction in sulfur dioxide emissions by the year 2000.
Indiana, of course, has no shortage of limestone. The state has more than enough to meet the projected demand of 1.5 million tons per year for use in the state's twelve operational scrubbers. But, it turns out, some limestones "scrub" better than others.

Nelson R. Shaffer, a research scientist with the Indiana Geological Survey at Indiana University Bloomington, has spent the last several years studying chemical, mineralogic, and physical properties of Indiana limestones to determine what makes some stones more effective in scrubbers than others. "Over the years, we've found that as regulations and technical specifications for industry change, we need to know more about the properties of the state's resources, such as coal and limestone," Shaffer explains. "In this case, we have an entirely new use for limestone, and that calls for a new way of analyzing which properties affect its performance in scrubbing mechanisms." Research conducted in the late sixties and seventies on the sorptive capacities of limestone in scrubbers showed that stones with similar chemistries didn't always produce similar results. According to Shaffer, similar stones can differ by more than a thousand percent in the amount of sulfur dioxide they can absorb. A further complication is that a particular limestone may scrub effectively in one type of scrubber, but not as well in others.

Geologists describe the effectiveness of limestone in scrubbers in terms of its "reactivity," a measure of how rapidly and completely a particular stone absorbs sulfur dioxide. "The 'wrong' kind of limestone can plug up filters and shut down scrubbing mechanisms," Shaffer explains. "Better limestones react quickly and efficiently, meaning that utilities need less stone to do the job. This makes scrubbing more economical and reduces the amount of solid waste at the end of the process." Cost is a key issue for utilities, given that a single scrubber can consume hundreds of thousands of tons of stone each year--more if it isn't scrubbing efficiently.

To study the composition of limestone in detail, Shaffer employs an empirical "relative-reactivity test," which places careful controls on the chemical processes that take place during wet-scrubbing. "In this test," Shaffer explains, "limestone is the only variable, allowing us to see how certain properties increase or decrease its reactivity." Shaffer's data show that a complex of chemical and physical factors can affect a limestone's scrubbing capacity. Physical properties, including porosity and hardness or "grindability," significantly affects reactivity. Limestone must be crushed to a specified texture for use in a particular scrubber; stones that are too hard scrub less efficiently and cost more to grind. Chemical properties such as the amount of magnesium contained in a limestone also affect its reactivity. Limestones that contain up to 5 percent magnesium work well, but if magnesium is present as dolomite, reactivity can be hurt. The presence of insoluble residues in stones also decreases their scrubbing efficiency.

Researchers can enter data, combined with information about a given power plant's specific combustion equipment and scrubber mechanisms, into a complex computer simulation model that enables them to profile the limestone best suited to a particular scrubbing mechanism. Local utilities such as Indianapolis Power & Light (IPL) have benefited from Shaffer's evaluative model, which is now available nationwide through the Electric Power Research Institute. Support for Shaffer's research came from a partnership between the Geological Survey, the Indiana Department of Commerce, the Indiana Mineral Aggregates Association, and IPL.

Wet limestone scrubber technology may help rehabilitate the "dirty" reputation of Indiana's high-sulfur coal. Shaffer reports that the local limestone industry is already benefiting from increased sales of scrubber stone: two new limestone quarries have opened in anticipation of growing demand. Greater efficiency of scrubbers may encourage Indiana utilities to purchase coal mined in their "own back yards" with the assurance that it is cost-effective and beneficial to the state's economy--Deborah Galyan

Found this new twist COKE and Limestone is the KEY on BMD : Rhymes:
Will Ivanhoe Energy Rise to Power Again?

By Jon A. Nones
17 Jan 2006 at 09:53 PM EST

ASPEN (ResourceInvestor.com) -- In late 2004, Ivanhoe Energy merged with Ensyn Group acquiring its heavy oil upgrading technology. Today, Ivanhoe announced that this technology was successfully tested at its Commercial Demonstration Facility - the first of its kind in the world. Bang! The company’s stock soared by almost 57%.

Resource Investor spoke directly with Ivanhoe Vice President Ed Veith at the International Oil & Gas Investor Forum about what this new technology could mean for Ivanhoe and the oil market. So listen up, energy buffs, because this could have major implications – with Shell and ExxonMobil for starters.




“There is a widening differential between heavy and light [crudes],” said Veith. “The world is definitely getting heavier.”

According to a company press release today, Ivanhoe’s revolutionary field-located heavy oil upgrading facility has successfully achieved a number of important performance goals during an extended test run last week.

The heavy oil upgrading technology has four key competitive advantages, according to the company:

It is field-located and effective at a relatively small minimum scale of 10,000 to 15,000 barrels per day;
The value of the upgraded liquid product means the producer is able to capture the majority of the price differential between heavy and light crude oil;
The upgraded product is easily transported by pipeline without the need for light blend oils; and
The process generates significant on-site excess energy, replacing natural gas for production of steam and/or power used in heavy-oil recovery.
Veith walked Resource Investor through each advantage and the potential affect on the market – with special attention to no. 4.

Small Scale Production

Because of the high costs to pull, transport and ultimately convert heavy crude to usable light crude, small-scale producers often struggle with costs. This new technology makes the process profitable for these small-scale producers, Veith said.

The company said it plans to begin testing crudes from some potential partners with an initial focus on heavy crudes from California and Western Canada, including bitumen from Canada’s Athabasca Tar Sands region, according to the release.

Although Ivanhoe has no current partners or projects in Athabasca, Veith said this could change shortly.

“We’re talking with potential partners in the Athabasca Tar Sands region,” Veith confirmed.

Price Differential

According to Veith, the price differential between heavy and light crude is currently about $12 a barrel in California. In Canada, it’s roughly $20 per barrel.

“Our technology eliminates this differential…it takes the lion’s share of it and gives it back to the producer,” said Veith.

Diluents

As most of us know, in order to successfully transport heavy crude through pipelines, light blend oils, or diluents, must be utilized. This is the second most expensive cost in heavy crude processing and can amount to a substantial overhead, Veith said.

However, because the heavy crude is converted to light crude on site, this cost can be removed. The technology thus allows for cheaper, more efficient transportation, added Veith.

And now to the most expensive cost in processing heavy crude – natural gas.

On-Site Energy

With natural gas prices currently as high as $9.10 per million Btu, heavy crude and tar sands producers are fighting to curb this increasing cost. It might even be safe to say, the company who can limit or substitute the use of natural gas, could be set to take home all the marbles.

According to Veith, Ivanhoe has succeeding in doing just that. The company’s new heavy crude facility only uses a minimal amount of natural gas for initial start up. The heat is sustained by combustion of the coke by-product, said Veith.

“We burn the coke for energy instead of natural gas,” he said.

This process has a heavy-to-light conversion yield of 81%-95%. In Athabasca’s case, it can generate 82% yield, Veith said.

Conclusion

Testing last week also confirmed flue gas sulphur capture, heavy metals capture and acidity reduction, according to the company. One more step closer to operational status. According to Veith, some local majors have expressed interest.

The facility is located in Aera Energy’s Belridge heavy oil field near Bakersfield, California. Aera is owned by affiliates of Shell and ExxonMobil, who “are very interested” in the technology, said Veith.

“We’re negotiating a 10,000-15,000 barrel per day plant with Shell and Exxon,” said Veith.

Share Price Activity


Shares of Ivanhoe [Nasdaq:IVAN; TSX:IE] closed today at $2.38 - up 86 cents or 56.58% on Nasdaq.

However the shares are still off their 52-week high of $3.34 reached in March last year, and way off the high of $6.95 in November 2003. Ivanhoe shares have traded as low as 99 cents in the last year.

Could this be the start of Ivanhoe’s rise to power again? Based on today’s market reaction, good tidings may indeed lie ahead.
