Why Canada is the next frontier for shale oil
Why Canada is the next frontier for shale oil CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - The revolution in U.S. shale oil has battered Canada’s energy industry in recent years, ending two decades of rapid expansion and job creation in the nation’s vast oil sands. Now Canada is looking to its own shale fields to repair the economic damage. Canadian producers and global oil majors are increasingly exploring the Duvernay and Montney formations, which they say could rival the most prolific U.S. shale fields. Canada is the first country outside the United States to see large-scale development of shale resources, which already account for 8 percent of total Canadian oil output. China, Russia and Argentina also have ample shale reserves but have yet to overcome the obstacles to full commercial development. Canada, by contrast, offers many of the same advantages that allowed oil firms to launch the shale revolution in the United States: numerous private energy firms with appetite for risk; deep capital markets; infrastructure to transport oil; low population in regions that contain shale reserves; and plentiful water to pump into shale wells. Together, the Duvernay and Montney formations in Canada hold marketable resources estimated at 500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, 20 billion barrels of natural gas liquids and 4.5 billion barrels of oil, according to the National Energy Board, a Canadian regulator. “The Montney is thought to have about half the recoverable resources of the whole oil sands region, so it’s formidable,” Marty Proctor, chief executive of Calgary-based Seven Generations Energy, told Reuters in an interview. Canada’s shale output stands at about 335,000 bpd, according to energy consultants Wood Mackenzie, which forecasts output should grow to 420,000 bpd in a decade. The pace of output growth could quicken and the estimated size of the resources could rise as activity picks up and knowledge of the fields improves, according to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. Seven Generations and Encana Corp, also based in Calgary, are among leading producers developing the two regions. Global majors including Royal Dutch Shell and ConocoPhillips - who pulled back from the oil sands last year - are also developing Canadian shale assets. Chevron Corp announced its first ever Canadian shale development in the Duvernay in November. Spokesman Leif Sollid called it one of the most promising shale opportunities in North America. ConocoPhillips sees potential for the Montney to deliver significant production and cash flow to the company, executive vice president of production drilling and projects Al Hirshberg said in November. Shell will invest more money this year in the Duvernay than any other shale field except the Permian Basin in West Texas, the most productive U.S. shale play, spokesman Cameron Yost said. “We may learn something in the Permian that becomes applicable in the Montney, and vice versa,” Yost said. The oil sands boom dates back two decades, when improved technology, rising crude prices and fears of global oil shortages sparked a rush to develop the world’s third-largest reserves. But in the last five years, much of that investment has migrated south as U.S. shale firms pioneered new drilling techniques and flooded global oil markets with cheaper-to-produce crude. The oil sands currently account for two-thirds of Canada’s 4.2 million barrels per day of crude. They will continue to contribute heavily to Canada’s energy output because oil sands projects, once built, produce for decades. But the era of oil sands mega-projects will likely end with Suncor Energy’s 190,000 barrel-per-day Fort Hills mining project, which started producing this month. Canadian energy officials are now counting on shale, also known as “tight” oil, to lure new investment. “Increasingly we are going to see light tight oil and liquids-rich natural gas forming a key part of Alberta’s energy future,” said Margaret McCuaig-Boyd, energy minister for the province where the oil sands and much of the nation’s shale reserves arare located.

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.

Permian Basin Frac Sand Mine Time-Lapse Construction Video
This time-lapse video shows the spectacular feat of turning west Texas ranch land into a state-of-the-art regional frac sand mine in just a few short months. Groundbreaking on the first of two Black Mountain Sand facilities in the Permian Basin started in June 2017, with the first commercial truckload rolling out of the Vest facility on January 22, 2018. The Vest Mine is the opening chapter in the Black Mountain Sand story. The mine is named after the Vest family who homesteaded in Winkler County, Texas and built a successful ranch whose legacy has lasted for generations and continues today. It is from this storied land that Black Mountain Sand has carved out a reserve base of over 1.5 billion tons of high-quality white frac sand. Today, our flagship product, Winkler White®, is helping meet the completion needs of E&P companies operating throughout the Permian Basin. Since the Vest Mine opened for business, we are proud to have reached the 500 truck per day milestone. Once fully operational in mid-2018, Vest and its sister mine, El Dorado, will boast the largest mining capacity in the Permian Basin at 8,000,000 annual tons, which equates to approximately 320,000 truckloads worth of frac sand per year.

As Texas Pipeline Blockade Continues, Activists Challenge First U.S. Tar Sands Mine in Utah
DemocracyNow.org - As a direct action blockade of the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline continues in Texas, we look at what could be the first actual tar sands and oil shale strip mining operation in the United States. Not far from Moab, Utah, the state has already leased land to a Canadian energy development company that recently changed its name to U.S. Oil Sands. The company plans to mine nearly 6,000 acres in an area of unspoiled wilderness that is also the watershed of the Colorado River, which provides water to more than 30 million people. The mine itself would be water-intensive in what is already the second driest state in the country, and activists say chemicals used in the mine could pollute the water that is left. We're joined by two activists working to block the project: John Weisheit, longtime Conservation Director of Living Rivers/Colorado Riverkeeper; and Ashley Anderson, founder and director of "Before It Starts," which is leading the fight to stop tar sands drilling in Utah.

Direct Action: Colorado Plateau Resistance shuts down tar sands construction site
People of the Colorado Plateau shut down construction of a tar sands mine in Utah Aug. 6. A small band calling themselves Colorado Plateau Resistance swarmed machinery and put their bodies in the way of their path, completely stopping construction of the mine for part of the day. This direct action is one in a long string of actions organized by people opposed to the mining destruction. "The Colorado Plateau and its inhabitants are are under invasion on multiple fronts of the energy industry," the group said. "This tar sands mine is a bloody blip in a bigger scheme threatening this land, including the reopening of uranium mines that have poisoned indigenous communities for generations; the planned construction of a nuclear generator in Green River, Utah; violent and vast scraping of the land and squandering of sacred water in pursuit of lowest-grade fuel sources like tar sands and oil shale; a new "oil" refinery in Green River perhaps to centralize production and distribution of those super-toxic tar sands and oil shale fuels; and all of this paid for and made possible by the dangerous fracking boom, which is poisoning our air and water and killing the most vulnerable members of our communities, our babies and old people. This second Big Buildup of the Colorado Plateau is similar to the first Big Buildup of the 20th Century, which fostered disastrous projects like the Glen Canyon Dam, the Navajo Generating station, and the Peabody coal mine at Black Mesa; this second Big Buildup of the Colorado plateau also resembles the initial conquering and genocide of this land by the American government and white settlers. In those prior historical times and today, masters of industry and thus colonialism must control the land and subjugate its people in order to consolidate the wealth of the land in the hands of very few white elites. Their most powerful weapons are and always have been racism and patriarchy and their value system is heartless capitalism. We are forever in contempt of their scheme. This energy industry is a murderous syndicate whose business plans for the future entail the destruction of life on the planet via climate-change catastrophes and crises. Now is the time for all who have something to contribute to give all that you can to the final shut-down of projects like the US Oil Sands tar sands mine and all the many tentacles sucking the life of the Colorado Plateau and Grand Mother Earth herself."

Storm Brewing: Permanent protest setup at proposed tar sands strip mine
music: http://www.kleebenally.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PR SPRINGS, UTAH--Land defenders have established a permanent protest vigil inside the boundaries of a planned tar sands strip mine in the Book Cliffs of Utah. The Canadian company behind the controversial plan intended to begin construction of the mine this summer, but people have vowed to stop it. U.S. Oil Sands, of Calgary, Alberta, holds leases on 32,000 acres of land traditionally inhabited by Ute people but now controlled by the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration. FOR PHOTOS AND EMBED VIDEO/B-ROLL, GO TO: http://www.TarSandsResist.org/storm-brewing Utah Tar Sands Resistance, Peaceful Uprising and Canyon Country Rising Tide--as well as supporters from throughout the Colorado Plateau--have endorsed the protest vigil. "These beautiful lands that US Oil Sands plans to destroy have been enjoyed by Utahns for decades and were the home for Ute people for hundreds of generations," said Jessica Lee, on behalf of the land defenders. "This tar sands strip mine would cause swift obliteration of multiple ecosystems and severe contributions to climate-change related disasters." The company's immediate plans include spending $60 million dollars on preliminary construction. US Oil Sands' chemical solvent has never been used for tar sands processing anywhere on the planet. Toxins from the mine pose risks to the Colorado River Basin, which provides drinking water for at least 20 million—including the people of Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix—as well as 15 percent of the nation's produce. Tar sands development in Alberta has poisoned the drinking water for downstream people and wildlife, which indigenous communities there rely upon for food. Tar sands critics have accused the megaproject of continuing genocide against native peoples and spewing more greenhouse-gas emissions than any other project on Earth. The newly established protest vigil at the Utah tar sands project is the latest in a string of persistent setbacks dogging US Oil Sands' fortunes. The company has routinely missed construction goals. US Oil Sands stock price on the Toronto Stock Exchange had dropped 50 percent from its 2013 peak, representing a $100 million loss in value. Worse yet, US Oil Sands lacks a refinery contract, so despite big promises, it's unclear how the company intends to bring its product to market. Utah's five oil refineries—including two in Salt Lake City that currently process Alberta tar sands—remain the most likely candidates. But that does't mean a deal is likely. In reaction to public protest in 2013, which saw people breech the Salt Lake City refinery's gates, Chevron said it would not process Utah tar sands. The other Utah tar sands refinery—Tesoro--is currently seeking regulatory approval to switch off of Alberta tar sands in favor of Uintah Basin crude. Direct action has hurt US Oil Sands before. In July 2013, people shut down construction of the PR Springs test mine and construction of nearby Seep Ride Road for a full day, delivering US Oil Sands a 13 percent stock dip. (for more: http://www.peacefuluprising.org/actioncampaction ) The company still lacks a go-ahead from the Utah Supreme Court. Living Rivers' lawsuit against US Oil Sands and the Division of Water Quality was heard by the court in March. Despite several pristine springs and ponds—water routinely pools even in the company's 10-acre test mine—DWQ ruled there was not sufficient water to require the company to monitor water pollutants caused by the mine.

Tar Sands and Oil Shale
I need to make a few corrections on Taylor's video . . . 800 Billion barrels will not last us for 400 years at 20 million barrels a day (7.3 Billion annually). But it will last us for over 100 years though. Taylor also doesn't make it clear that 90% of the water would be recycled in the production and extraction of the Tar Sands and Shale Oil. She also doesn't mention about the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota, which is mostly shale and contains almost as much oil as the Green River Formation. Canada is currently developing their Tar Sands on a large scale and getting larger every year, currently about 2 million barrels a day and their goal is to do over 3 million barrels a day with the next several years. The US has the most Shale in the world, but is still reluctant to develop this abundant resource. There is enough oil from our shale to last us over 150 years even without imports.

Global 3000 | Oil Rush in Canada - A boom and its consequenc
Alberta is a province in Western Canada. The Rocky Mountains cross the territory,which has a number of national parks. But it is also home to an industry which is starting to exploit huge mineral deposits...the oil sands,Canada's most important source of petroleum.A third of the world's oil sands are located here. But the mining of the substance is causing massive environmental destruction. And extracting crude oil from sand is very energy intensive. The emissions of CO2 are three times as high as with standard methods of oil extraction. The oil sands industry is the largest single source of greenhouse gasses in Canada and the quantity of emissions is set to rise as the industry expands. Because the thirst for oil is so great in the neighbouring US,Canada will hardly be able to meet its Kyoto protocol commitments.

In the vast, pristine forests of Western Canada, the war for water has already begun Thanks to Albertas Athabasca oil sands, Canada is now the biggest oil supplier to the United States. A controversial billion-dollar industry is heavily invested in extracting crude from the tarry sands through a process so toxic it has become an international cause for concern. Four barrels of glacier-fed spring water are used to process each barrel of oil, then are dumped, laden with carcinogens, into leaky tailings ponds so huge they can be seen from space. Downstream, the people of Fort Chipewyan are already paying the price for what will be one of the largest industrial projects in history. When a local doctor raises the alarm about clusters of rare cancers, evidence mounts for industry and government cover-ups.

Utah Tar Sands Resistance Back-country Hike to Protest Proposed Tar Sands Strip Mine
US Oil Sands is beginning its tar sands strip mining operations at PR Springs, Utah. This is the proposed first site of tar sands mining in the USA. Utah Tar Sands Resistance was there on October 14, 2012 as part of a campaign to prevent further destruction. This is a few of us hiking there by back-country routes. This type of mining is senseless and has destroyed an area the size of Florida in Alberta, Canada. Help Utah Tar Sands Resistance to prevent US Oil Sands from getting a permit to mine tar sands in Utah. http://tarsandsutah.blueskyinstitute.org/
