AbstractThe oil sands are a strategic resource that is important for the energy security of Canada, North America and the world. The oil sands comprise more than 97 percent of Canada's 175 billion barrels of proven oil reserves. In 2009, production from the oil sands was 1.5 million barrels per day. While more than 7 billion barrels of oil sands crude oil have been produced to date, this represents only a small portion of the overall resource. Continued demand for oil is expected to contribute to ongoing growth in oil sands production for years to come.
