Oil sands, an unconventional hydrocarbon resource, holds vast growth potential for crude oil production amid declining output from maturing conventional fields and slowing pace of new discoveries. The oil sands deposits in Alberta, which are among the world’s largest hydrocarbon reserves, are playing an influential role in driving the oil and gas industry in Canada. Despite facing severe backlash from environmentalists around the world, there has been an increase in oil sands exploration and production activities, although the focus is gradually shifting towards adopting technologies to curb greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption.
