AbstractThe oil sands are a strategic resource that is important for future energy security in Canada, North America and the world. The oil sands comprise 97 percent of Canada's 176 billion barrels of oil reserves. With rapid increases in production over the past few years, the oil sands now provide 1.3 million barrels of crude oil per day. Although 6 billion barrels of oil sands crude oil have been produced to date, this represents only a small portion of the overall resource. Therefore, we expect ongoing growth in oil sands production in the coming years.
