    Tar sands oil not only exceeds conventional petroleum, but the energy used in mining, processing, and transporting tar sands oil makes it slightly worse — in terms of CO 2 produced per unit. The roots of Sierra Club Canada go back to , when environmentalists in British Columbia affiliated themselves with the Sierra Club of the United States (many of these individuals were prominent in the founding of Greenpeace).Sierra Club Canada became a pan-Canadian organization in , and was legally incorporated as a Canadian organization in Headquarters: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.   Unlike the oil sands deposits in Canada, oil is not currently produced from tar sands on a commercial scale in the United States. U.S. tar sands are hydrocarbon wet, whereas the Canadian oil sands are water wet, meaning that U.S. tar sands would require different processing techniques. The aim of this research project is to analyze the Alberta oil sands from an environmental justice perspective using GIS spatial analyses. Using geographically weighted regression, we try to quantify the relationship between socio-economic and racial factors to incidents of substance release by oil and gas companies in Alberta with a focus on.

This paper describes a novel approach to controlling calcium levels in the recycle water without resorting to a conventional lime-softening process. OIL SANDS EXTRACTION TAILINGS AND THE CONSOLIDATED TAILINGS PROCESS An oil sands extraction operation requires about m3 of water per tonne of oil sand processed.

This policy requires all oil sands process water be contained on site and disallows the release of process water to the environment. Oil sands companies are also subject to federal rules prohibiting the deposit of substances that are harmful to fish in the river.

Approximately two tons of ore are required to produce a barrel of bitumen product, and typically, oil sands are 85% mineral (70% sand and 15% fines), 12% bitumen, and 3% connate (or formation) water. In the early days of oil-sands development, the mining Approaches to oil sands water releases book were relatively small, with production of.

Oil Spill Environmental Forensics Case Studies addresses releases of natural gas/methane, automotive gasoline and other petroleum fuels, lubricants, vegetable oils, paraffin waxes, bitumen, manufactured gas plant residues, urban runoff, and, of course, crude oil, the latter ranging from light Bakken shale oil to heavy Canadian oil sands oil.

Though less discussed internationally due to to their Author: Sarah M. Jordaan. While much of this water is recycled and used many times over, the oil sands use more water per year than the entire city of Calgary.

The key policy Approaches to oil sands water releases book regarding water for this purpose is the need to allocate water supplies in a way that properly balances oil sands production needs with ecosystem and human needs in the region.

Canada’s current approach to oil sands development epitomizes irresponsible development. The manner in which the oil sands are developed is of national interest and includes issues of federal jurisdiction such as greenhouse Approaches to oil sands water releases book pollution, transboundary issues (acid rain, water quality and.

Inwhile oil production increased approximately 55 percent to million cubic meters, make-up water use stayed essentially flat at 31 million cubic meters. Overall in situ water use increased over the period to about million cubic meters, which the AER says was almost entirely enabled by increased recycling (79 percent in to Expansion of oil sands development results not only in the release of greenhouse gas emissions, but also impacts land and water resources.

Though less discussed internationally due to to their inherently local nature, land and water impacts can be severe.

Allen. We are grateful that federal scientists like you have been tracking water pollution in lake ecosystems in and around the oil sands. Your recent findings published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences show that water pollution in northern Alberta lakes is a result of oil sands.

This new book is an important educational tool for anyone in the petroleum industry--whether upstream, downstream, or pipeline--who would like to learn the fundamentals of the most commonly known unconventional oils: oil sands, heavy oil, and bitumen/5(3). The projects approved under the Ambient Environment Monitoring Plan for Oil Sands Development are presented here (*also see addendum).

Oil sands producers are talking with the federal and Alberta governments about conditions under which water from the industry’s tailings ponds could be released into the environment.

Officials say releases would only involve treated water and wouldn’t happen until the end of a mine’s life. – Oil sands operations return almost none of the water they use to the natural cycle, often injecting waste water deep underground. – Mining operations alone are licensed to divert million cubic metres of water each year, about seven times as much as the annual water needs of the Edmonton area.

Expansion of oil sands development results not only in the release of greenhouse gas emissions, but also impacts land and water resources.

Though less discussed internationally due to to their inherently local nature, land and water impacts can be severe.

Research in key areas is needed to manage oil sands operations effectively; including improved monitoring of ground and surface water quality. The forensic studies of naphthenic acids fraction components in oil sands process water (OSPW) and crude oil has continued to receive significant attention due to increased need to explicate the toxicological claims of these components and their distributions in environmental samples and to address the problems faced in the petroleum industry.

Canada's "no. 1 defender of freedom of speech" and the bestselling author of Shakedown makes the timely and provocative case that when it comes to oil, ethics matter just as much as the economy and the environment. InEzra Levant's bestselling book Shakedown revealed the corruption of Canada's human rights commissions and was declared the "most important public affairs book /5(75).

A Carbon-Intense Industry. The carbon intensity of oil sands development poses other environmental health questions. The extraction and refining of oil sands produces 30–70% more greenhouse gas emissions than conventional oil production, according to estimates by Alex Farrell and Adam Brandt published in the October issue of Climatic the greenhouse gas impact of oil sands is Cited by: Water resources – surface water Oil Sands projects are now licensed to divert more than million cubic meters of freshwater from the rivers and aquifers in the Athabasca Basin each year, 7 times the water needs of the Edmonton area.

82% is for water from the mainstem of the Athabasca River and 13% is water from major tributaries. The Centre for Oil Sands Sustainability (COSS) was formed in with an endowment of $M from the Ledcor Group and seed funding from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).

COSS bridges the gap between existing oil sands environmental research and relevant solutions with an immediate impact on sustainability. Oil sands extraction can affect the land when the bitumen is initially mined, water resources by its requirement for large quantities of water during separation of the oil and sand, and the air due to the release of carbon dioxide and other emissions.

Enhanced oil recovery (abbreviated EOR), also called tertiary recovery, is the extraction of crude oil from an oil field that cannot be extracted otherwise.
