Oil Sands Information

The importance of Canada’s oil sands stems from the value of oil to our economy and energy security. Global demand for energy continues to rise, and oil sands have the potential to supply much of what we will need in the U.S., while also creating many new American jobs. Advanced technologies developed over many years are used to produce oil from oil sands.
