Some people following the ongoing pipeline debates are surprised to learn that the province of Alberta, sometimes maligned for its oil sands industry, has long had regulations in place to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Oil Sands Question and Response (OSQAR) is a blog created by Suncor Energy to support constructive dialogue about the oil sands. In our weekly posts, we talk about the energy industry, environmental impact, tailings management and reclamation, water management and the social and economic implications of oil sands development.
Our oil sands operations are near Fort McMurray, Alberta, where we recover bitumen from oil sands through mining and in situ operations. The bitumen from both operations is then upgraded to refinery-ready feedstock and diesel fuel. More about the where and the what of the oil sands can be found on our oil sands resource page.
There are countless advantages we all share because of how energy is used. And there are challenges we all want addressed. See what Yes can do and be part of the conversation.
