Forecasting the impacts of oilsands expansionMeasuring the land disturbance, air quality, water use, greenhouse gas emissions, and tailings production associated with each barrel of bitumen production

Publication - June 20, 2013 - By Simon Dyer, Jennifer Grant, Eli Angen

Pembina has quantified a number of metrics of oilsands production on a per-barrel basis, including land disturbance, air emissions, water use, greenhouse gas emissions, and tailings production.

This provides a comprehensive assessment of current and potential future impacts based on approved projects as well as growth projections.
