Daniel Schiffner has a diverse background, with several years of experience in both the oil and gas industry and working in healthcare with Alberta Health Services. He is well-versed in data/economic analysis and policy evaluation. Daniel has been involved in several research projects in the academic and private sectors. Examples of this include:

  • Economic Impact Assessment of Inactive Petroleum Wells – Completed an estimate of the volume and financial cost of leaked gas from inactive petroleum wells and compared these results to well reclamation/remediation expenses to inform policy recommendations. This work involved analyzing an extensive dataset and a net-present-value comparison of future option expenses.
  • Cost-Benefit Analysis of Infrastructure Project– Conduct a financial analysis for a potential capital-intensive infrastructure project to assess economic feasibility. This project involved estimating the construction costs of a novel facility and modelling future energy prices.
  • Resource Development Assessment – Compared three potential options for the development of an Alberta oil field. Daniel completed a detailed analysis of the net-present-value of each development option.
  • Evaluation of Carbon Abatement Policy – Researched the impacts (both negative and positive) associated with a variety of carbon abatement policies. Delivered a report on how these impacts likely prevail in current socio-economic conditions.
  • Policy Documentation Analysis – Daniel completed an overview of organization policy and delivered an update to policy content and outward-facing documentation. This process involved organizational interviews and external data/policy assessment.
  • Assessment of Cattle Ranch Energy Costs – A cost-benefit analysis of implementing a new heating system on a working cattle ranch. This project involved interviews to understand how the project would benefit ranch operations and modelling the costs to implement the project.
