2014 chart data

Energy intensity (GJ/m³OE)

Our oil sands energy use intensity in 2014 decreased from 2013 levels. This is primarily due to our efforts at improving energy efficiency and reducing the amount of steam required per barrel of oil produced in the oil sands, which in turn reduces the amount of energy required per barrel of oil produced.

The primary cause for the increase in the company-wide energy intensity is due to a new natural gas liquids plant that started up in late 2013 at our Weyburn enhanced oil recovery project, which requires purchased electricity to run its compressors.
