Environmental consequences of oil production from oil

2.1 Description and Data. We assessed current and potential impacts of oil sands extraction in terms of forest loss, water use, carbon dioxide equivalent emissions, and inhabitants in areas underlain by oil sands deposits in five countries—Canada, Venezuela, the United States, Republic of the Congo, and Madagascar—whose deposits account for the majority of the oil sands discovered

Environmental impacts of oil sands Energy Education

The environmental impact of the oil sands is an issue that has been extremely divisive. As with the extraction and use of any fossil fuel, negative environmental effects arise as a result of the extraction, upgrading, and processing of bitumen from the oil sands. Although some steps are being taken to reduce the severity of these impacts such

Environmental consequences of oil production from oil sands

Crude oil from oil sands will constitute a substantial share of future global oil demand. Oil sands deposits account for a third of globally proven oil reserves, underlie large natural forested areas, and have extraction methods requiring large volumes of freshwater. Yet little work has been done to quantify some of the main environmental impacts of oil sands operations.

Environmental Impacts of Oil Sands Development in Alberta

Carbon IntensityWater UseTailingsCumulative ImpactsOil sands development is carbon-intensive. The production and upgrading required to produce synthetic crude oil from oil sands mining results in greenhouse gas emissions in the range of 62 to 164 kilograms of CO2 equivalent per barrel. In situ development, which is generally more carbon-intensive than mining, results in emission rates between 99 and 176 kilograms of CO2 equivalent per barrel.10 Although there is a high degree of variation, industry average emissions for oil sands production a...
