Alberta tar sands mining project

Suncor Energy (TSX, NYSE:SU), Canada’s largest oil and gas producer, is hoping to start building a new oil sands project later in Alberta this year, which would have an estimated production of up 160,000 barrels a day. The Lewis project would be located about 25 km northeast

The Syncrude oil sands mine is one of the oldest operating in Alberta. But a declining oil market makes newer projects like Frontier, canceled Sunday, hard to build. Credit: Michael S. He spent a week at Fort McMurray in November, 2011, the hub of Alberta's mining industry. The city sits on the Athabasca tar sands, the world's largest known deposit of bitumen. Some of the bitumen Alberta's oil sands has the third largest oil reserves in the world, after Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. Alberta's oil sands’ proven reserves equal about 165.4 billion barrels (bbl). Crude bitumen production (mined and in situ) totalled about 2.8 million barrels per day (bbl/d) in 2017. Frontier Project. The Frontier project is a proposed oil sands mine in northeastern Alberta. Teck is committed to developing the Frontier Project responsibly by incorporating best practices for environmental protection, tailings management, water use, reclamation and management of greenhouse gases. 2019 MONTHLY BITUMEN PRODUCTION FROM MINING thousand bbl/day • data by AER.

All in Excel format, no special software required. The Alberta tar sands are currently producing around two million barrels of oil per day, with plans to increase that to nearly four million barrels per day by 2022. Reuters photographer Todd Korol recently traveled to Alberta to photograph some of the mines, facilities, and surrounding landscape.
