Mye mer tjæreolje

Canadierne forventer at produksjonen av tjæreolje fra oljesandforekomstene vil øke fra 2,2 til 3,7 millioner fat per dag i løpet av bare 15 år.

According to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), crude oil production is expected to increase by 28% over the next 15 years, reaching 4.9 mb/d by 2030 (up from 3.8 mb/d in 2015), skriver enerdata.net.
Increased oil production will require the development of new transportation infrastructures, which are currently matching oil production levels (nearly 4 mb/d each).
Oil sands will remain the primary driver for growth in Canadian crude oil production: by 2030, oil sands are expected to produce 3.7 mb/d, i.e. more than 1.5 mb/d over current production levels.
Conventional oil production in Western Canada, including condensates, will decline from 1.3 mb/d in 2015 to 1.1 mb/d by 2018 and is expected to remain relatively stable to 2030.
