Red Deer South MLA Cal Dallas will be pitching Alberta’s energy technology and innovation in Europe during the next few weeks.

Dallas, who is the province’s minister of International and Intergovernmental Relations, is scheduled to attend the World Heavy Oil Congress in Scotland from Sept. 10 to 12.

There, he will meet with Scottish officials and industry representatives, and present on heavy oil development.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to showcase the technology and innovation behind Alberta’s oilsands to some of the world’s most prominent energy companies and government officials,” said Dallas in a release.

He will also travel to Germany and Italy, where he is slated to meet with representatives of government and industry.

Dallas will return to Canada on Sept. 21.

The World Heavy Oil Congress, which was first held in 2006, encourages co-operation among heavy-oil-producing countries, promotes related technologies, and supports the development of this resource.

The government release estimated the cost of Dallas’s trip, which will include one staff member, at $41,645.
