SO2 emissions and intensity

In 2013, our SO2 emissions increased by 17 percent. This was primarily due to an increase in flaring, which is a controlled burning of natural gas, as a result of unforeseen operational issues at our Weyburn CO2 enhanced oil recovery operation. While our SO2 emissions intensity increased in 2013, it remains about 84 percent below the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers Responsible Canadian Energy 2013 Progress Report industry average for oil sands and western Canada oil and gas production.
