Canada's Tar Sands: The most destructive project on Earth? - Truthloader
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
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. Check out my other video on water issues: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMmpg35Bym0 and see my other videos to learn about the dark side of fossil fuels.

Petropolis: Aerial Perspectives on the Alberta Tar Sands
Shot primarily from a helicopter, filmmaker Peter Mettler's "Petropolis: Aerial Perspectives on the Alberta Tar Sands" offers an unparalleled view of the world's largest industrial, capital and energy project. Canada's tar sands are an oil reserve the size of England. Extracting the crude oil called bitumen from underneath unspoiled wilderness requires a massive industrialized effort with far-reaching impacts on the land, air, water, and climate. It's an extraordinary spectacle, whose scope can only be understood from far above. In a hypnotic flight of image and sound, one machine's perspective upon the choreography of others, suggests a dehumanized world where petroleum's power is supreme.

Oil Sands Extraction - LFTR in Alberta?
Extracting crude from Alberta's Oil Sands is extremely energy intensive. One way of lowering our CO2 footprint, would be using a liquid-fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) as a power source. Is such an approach politically feasible in Canada? Is lowering CO2 footprint of extracting crude from oil sands significant, when the resulting fuel will ultimately release CO2 itself?

Rethink Alberta - Tar (Oil) Sands Pollute Athabasca  River
High levels of toxic pollutants in Alberta's Athabasca River system are linked to oilsands mining, researchers have found. The findings counter the reports by a joint industry-government panel that the pollutant levels are due to natural sources rather than human development. Mercury, thallium and other pollutants accumulated in higher concentrations in snowpacks and waterways near and downstream from oilsands development than in more remote areas, said a study to be published Monday afternoon in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Upstream and undeveloped sites exposed directly to the McMurray Geologic Formation, the natural source of the oilsands, did not show high levels of pollutants. The study led by Erin Kelly and David Schindler of the University of Alberta also found that levels of the pollutants cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, silver and zinc exceeded federal and provincial guidelines for the protection of aquatic life in melted snow or water collected near or downstream from oilsands mining. "They're all elements that are known to be very toxic at low concentrations," Schindler said. He added that natural levels of some elements are already high in waters in that area. "Adding more is certainly not going to do the ecosystem any good." Researchers at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., and Juneau, Alaska-based Oceana, a non-profit group focused on water quality issues, also contributed to the report. The study was funded by the Tides Foundation and the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation, two non-profit groups with an interest in environmental projects. Residents downstream from the oilsands have expressed concerns that pollution in the river may be causing increased cancer rates. However, the Regional Aquatic Monitoring Program, or RAMP, a joint industry-government environmental body that monitors water in the Athabasca River and its tributaries, said in its 2009 report that generally, "water quality was similar between [test] stations located within and outside oil sands development and when compared to conditions prior to development." The program has reported the pollutant levels occur naturally because of erosion of the natural geologic formation that contains the oilsands and are not caused by human activity. Goal to test claims of monitoring program The authors of Monday's study said they wanted to test those claims. As of 12:30 p.m. ET, RAMP had not responded to requests for comment from CBC News. RAMP's findings have been questioned in the past, but critics did not have any data from independent studies to compare to the program's data, the paper said. The new findings confirm "the serious defects" of the monitoring program, the study concluded. It added that detailed monitoring, including the ability to distinguish the sources of the contaminants, is "essential" to control the potential impact of pollutants on human health. Schindler said the levels of pollutants found by his study were easily measurable and "any program that cannot detect these levels has to be considered incompetent." He called for Environment Canada to take over monitoring. The researchers collected water from more than 35 sites in February and June 2008 along the Athabasca River, its tributaries, the Athabasca Delta and Lake Athabasca. They accumulated winter snowpack from 31 other sites in the region in March 2008. The researchers chose sampling sites upstream and downstream from oilsands mining, with both within 50 kilometres of oilsands developments and near undeveloped oilsands sites. They then tested the samples for levels of 13 elements listed as priority pollutants under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Water Act.

Extracting oil sands for the Keystone XL pipeline
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.

Canadian Oil Sands Create Energy Boom and Environmental Problems
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.

Distributed by Young America Films, the Canada’s National Film Board presents “Canadian Work and Wealth Series No. 8 Story of Oil” — a 1940s black-and-white film on the benefits of oil and natural gas and the migratory lifestyle of oilmen. Mark 01:00 shows us a view of the foothills of Alberta province, home of the largest supplies of oil in Canada, and Turner Valley in Calgary, where tiny towns are home to many of the workers who rely on the oil wells for income. The oilmen and cattlemen share the land, though the oilmen know that when the well runs dry it will be time to move on. At mark 03:10, we see men preparing a drill as the narrator discusses how fossils are responsible for creating that oil. Following scenes of a seismographic study to “see” the various levels of rock, geologists can determine whether a proposed site may hold oil. A new well is shown being dug starting at mark 06:15 and an oil derrick being erected that will hold the drilling gear. Drilling soon begins, and after changing the drill bit at mark 09:53, drilling begins again. At mark 12:09, the viewer learns that not many wells are “gushers” as shown in TV or the movies. Rather, valve readings tell workers they have struck black gold and the length of pipe used in the drilling process is removed and prepared to be relocated. A casing is then inserted in the well to hold the wall while acid is pumped in to break down limestone and permit easier flow. Underground wastes are carried a safe distance from the well and burned, where at mark 12:56 we see a giant fire ball and black smoke rise into the air. The oil workers return home after the shift, where one man is shown being greeted at mark 13:28 by his wife and their infant daughter. Oil removed from the ground, we learn next, is stored in tanks and eventually transported to cleaning plants. At scrubbing and absorption plants, like one shown at mark 15:13, gas is separated from oil and high-octane is removed. At a refinery (mark 15:25) oil’s various commercial elements are further separated including gasoline, kerosene, and tar. As the film closes, the everyday uses of oil are shown, from a boy greasing his bicycle wheels to a girl lubricating her sewing machine. “Oil and gas and all the byproducts of petroleum, are an important part of our modern way of living,” concludes the narrator at mark 17:00. We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting?

Tar Sands Industry Losing $100 Million a Day
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.

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.
