The Transportation of Oil

Oil Production
  • Second largest source of oil in the world after Saudi Arabia
  • Government of Alberta in conjunction with industry seeks to enhance Alberta's role as a world-leading energy supplier
  • 1.31 million barrels per day in 2008
  • Expected 3 million barrels per day in 2018

Where Does our Oil Go?
  • Most of Canadas oil goes to the Unitied States (Over 50%)
  • However, out of all the oil the US consumes, only 16% of the oil comes from Canada
  • Only 45% of the oil used in Canada is from Canada (referring to Alberta)
  • Some of our oil goes over seas --> ex. China because they cannot produce their own oil
