oil sands Oil sands are a natural mixture of sand, water, clay, and bitumen. BiTUMEn Bitumen is oil that is too heavy or thick to flow or be pumped without being diluted or heated. Some bitumen is found within 70 metres ( ft) from the surface but the majority is deeper underground. a t 10°C bitumen is d as a y puck. loCaTion Canada’s oil File Size: 6MB. development. A review of issues in regard to federal involvement in Alberta oil sands development is provided in Appendix A to this paper. Part of the paper reviews the three main stages in the current legislative and regulatory framework for oil sands development — the mineral rights disposition stage;. The data provided gives an overview of the costs, revenues and royalties paid for each oil sands project in Alberta for The information published here is royalty project data, and is only relevant to and arises from royalty calculations. The information is solely intended for the purpose of.

gas, crude oil, and oil sands. Since the fiscal year the largest contributor to Alberta’s royalty revenues has been the oil sands. If you want a sense of how important oil sands royalties have been for Alberta’s finances, consider this: In the –15 fiscal year, the government collected just over $5 billion from oil sands royalties.   The project is being built with the support of partner Petrolama Namur Oil Sands Energy, a subsidiary of Czech Republic-based Lama Energy Group, as its first investment in the oilsands, he said. This paper was presented in October at the UNITAR conference, therefore key issues and options are included rather than the definitive positions that will be used for the new regulation. Furthermore, any positions, ideas or options regarding the new oil sands royalty system included in this paper is subject to change. 2 WORKING IN THE OIL SANDS MINES There are two elements that make working in the Alberta Oil Sands markedly different than a normal MSE project. The first is the geology of the area and the second is the scale of the equipment and operations. Oil Sands Geology & the Use of MSE Structures.

  The insane regression of the EIA process for in situ oil sand projects in Alberta Janu / hakchristopher Oil sands industry in Alberta is an extensive and intensive development which is economically primordial for Canada but it has damaging impacts on the surrounding environment.   Environmental assessment registry documents pertaining to the proposed Osum Oil Sands Corp. Sepiko Kesik. The proposal is for bitumen production capacity of approximat barrels per day. The oil sands are found mainly in the Athabasca, Peace River and Cold Lake areas of Alberta. Surface mining is used when the oil sands are close to the surface, using huge trucks and power shovels. The oil sands are transported to a processing facility where hot water is used to separate the bitumen from the sands. About 20 per cent of the oil. 4 Bitumen is produced from the oil sands in northern Alberta. It is heavier, thicker and of a lower quality than most crude oils that are pumped from a well. It also costs more to refine into end consumer products. As a result, it sells at a lower price relative to other types of crude oil.
