Canada's Tar Sands: The most destructive project on Earth? - Truthloader
 
07:50
Canada's Tar Sands is the third-largest proven crude oil reserve in the world behind Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. In 2011 it was believed the reserve amounted to 170.2 billion barrels of oil, or about 11% of total global oil reserves. But the development of Canada's Oil Sands is concerning environmentalists for several reasons, not least the fact that producing "tar oil", or "sand oil" as it's also known, releases three times the volume of greenhouse gas emissions as conventional oil.

Tar Sands Oil Extraction - The Dirty Truth
 
11:39
Environmental devastation of the land, water, and air - the largest industrial energy project in the world is extracting crude oil from bitumen found beneath the pristine boreal forest of Alberta, Canada. Effecting a land mass equivalent in size to Florida or England, Both industry and government are putting money before the health and security of its people and the environment. Tar sands take 3 barrels of water to process every barrel of oil extracted. Ninety percent of this water becomes so toxic that it must be stored in tailing ponds. Unfortunately these ponds regularly leach pollution into the third largest watershed in the world. Water depletion, exploitation, privatization and contamination has become one of the most important issues facing humanity this century.

Canadian Oil Sands - A look the past, present and future of Canada's Oil industry
 
07:52
With proven oil reserves of 171bn bbl, the world’s third-largest, Canada’s oil industry should be looking forward to a rosy future. Instead, Canada’s oil producers face opposition from environmental activists to their plans to raise production and build new pipelines, along with the withdrawal of the oil majors. It’s fair to say that the future is starting to look less appealing: and nowhere is this more so than in the oil sands belt of Alberta.

Canadian Oil Sands Create Energy Boom and Environmental Problems
 
03:31
US politicians often speak of reducing demand for imported oil coming from unfriendly nations. But the biggest foreign supplier of oil to the United States is Canada, a friendly nation. Much of the 1.4 million barrels of petroleum Canada sends south every day comes from an unconventional and somewhat dirty source, so-called "oil sands," sometimes disparagingly referred to as "tar sands" because of the thick, gooey nature of the product. VOA's Greg Flakus visited the oil sands region and filed this report from Fort McMurray, in Alberta Province.

Extracting oil sands for the Keystone XL pipeline
 
05:04
In northern Alberta, Canada, tons of oil sands are being extracted from the ground every day to produce a thick, gooey form of petroleum. Fort McMurray, the city at the center of oil sands mining, has seen a huge influx of people moving to the area for jobs in or related to the oil sands industry. The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would create an easier way for this oil to be transported from Alberta to refineries on Texas's Gulf Coast. However, many environmental groups oppose oil sands production because of the high amount of greenhouse gases the production creates, and the U.S. Government has yet to approve the pipeline.

Tar Sands Industry Losing $100 Million a Day
 
01:15
The Canadian tar sands industry has lost a combined $25 billion over the last three years and is currently losing approximately $100 million a day. Click here to subscribe to the DeSmog Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/DesmogBlog?sub_confirmation=1 At current prices, Canadian tar sands oil producers are losing money on every barrel of oil they dig out. Despite signs earlier this year the industry would “turn profitable in 2018,” a much more likely scenario at this point is a fourth straight year of losses. Producers are forced to keep cranking out product and selling it at a loss to cover the massive costs required to start one of these sprawling unconventional oil operations, a point made painfully clear when Alberta wildfires in 2016 forced some tar sands operators to shut down. “I do think they'll start up quickly once the danger from the fire is gone because there is a lot of motivation to do that,” Jackie Forrest, an energy economist for Arc Financial Corp, told The Globe and Mail. “They have a lot of fixed costs so they're going to be motivated to get some revenue to pay for those costs that aren't going away.” In the face of such challenging economics, what are Canadian tar sands producers doing? Tapping more oil than ever. In June 2018 Canada set a new record for exporting oil to the U.S., hitting well over three million barrels per day. This record coincided with another one for oil exported by rail from Canada to the U.S. The U.S. is currently the only major market for Canadian crude, with 99 percent of its exports going to either U.S. refineries or ports for export. Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration America Is Maxing out on Canadian Crude American refineries certainly enjoy buying Canadian crude at such low prices. How low are the prices? As the Financial Post reported in mid-October, Western Canadian Select (WCS) was $19 a barrel — approximately $50 a barrel cheaper than a barrel of the American oil standard known as Western Texas Intermediate (WTI). Without a competing market in sight, American buyers likely will continue receiving huge discounts on Canadian oil. As Sandy Fielden, director of oil and products research at Morningstar, told Reuters in 2016: “If Canada can’t get their oil to another market besides the U.S. [market], you’ll always be a price taker, not a price maker.” Even under these economic conditions, one company, Teck Resources, is proposing to build a new tar sands mining operation. Projections estimate the cost to produce a barrel of oil at this operation will be around $85 a barrel. That's quite the mismatch with what a barrel of Canadian crude oil is fetching these days, and doesn't bode well for a sustainable business model. Another complicating factor is that even at such low prices, American refineries only want and need so much tar sands oil, which is a heavy, lower-quality oil. America is experiencing a boom in production of the light fracked crude oil from shale basins, which is not only more valuable to refineries but requires much lower transportation costs than importing crude from Alberta, the tar sands capital of North America. As The Energy Mix reported recently: “Permian Basin oil is a far better fit for the only U.S. refineries capable of handling more bitumen [tar sands oil], and will likely be for at least the next decade.” As an example of that preference, Exxon just announced plans to expand its Beaumount, Texas, refinery by 300,000 barrels per day, which would make it the largest refinery in America. This additional capacity is for light crude oil, not heavy Canadian oil. Still, American refineries are importing, and refining, record amounts of Canadian oil right now, but at massively discounted prices compared to average global oil prices, which helps lead to huge profits for American refiners. Yet another complication for tar sands producers is that, as The Energy Mix highlighted, “In reality, virtually every refinery in America that buys heavy crude is operating at full capacity. That is why there are no buyers willing to pay higher prices.” Economics 101. If supply is higher than demand, prices go down. And sellers in that market have to take whatever price they can get, even if that means selling at a loss. To help extract itself from this difficult situation, Canada is looking to build pipelines, such as the still-uncertain Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, to transport its landlocked oil to tidewaters, where companies theoretically can sell the oil to Asia's rapidly growing market.

02:53
Canada is the fifth-largest producer of oil in the world. But when the price of oil plummeted in late 2014, the country’s oil-rich western province of Alberta began hurtling toward a recession, with widespread layoffs and historic reductions in drilling activity. The impact was felt across Canada, too. Crude oil is the country’s number one export, and 99 percent of it is sold to the United States. But in recent years, the US has emerged as a major oil producer in its own right, following a revolution in controversial fracking technology that has increased US oil production and contributed to a global oversupply of oil. Now, Canada's energy sector faces the difficult question of how to meet new markets in a changing global energy landscape. VICE News visited Alberta, known as Canada’s “Texas of the North," in what is normally high season for drilling — just before the frozen ground thaws — to explore how the bitter sting of low oil prices is affecting the region’s the economy. In this excerpt, VICE News speaks with the Canadian Association of Oil Drilling Contractors to hear how oil and gas exploration is slowing down, and meets the CEO of a small oil and gas company who is keeping drills in operation on his site, despite the declining oil prices.

Driving Oil Sands
 
01:30
http://energytomorrow.org Picture a small, but comfortable two-story house -- on four wheels. Now fill in all the rooms in the house with 400 tons of bitumen-laden sand and rock, and that's what it's like to be in one of the haulers at Suncor's oil sands mine in Alberta, Canada. Operating these huge trucks is just one of the well-paying jobs associated with oil sands. Research indicates that fully developing Canadian oil sands would create 80,000 direct or indirect U.S. jobs by 2020 and more than 500,000 by 2035.

The Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act (FIPPA), went into effect in October of 2012 and is Canada's biggest foreign trade treaty since NAFTA.
