Mining Energy Sources
The global demand for energy is rapidly increasing due to industrialisation in emerging economies, increasing wealth in emerging markets, globalisation, concerns over energy security and a heightened interest in environmentally sustainable fuels.
To meet these needs, energy suppliers need improved access to alternative energy sources including biofuels, uranium, coal bed methane and oil sands.
While these new energy sources present new opportunities for growth within the energy sector through new and innovative technologies, there are several operational challenges.
