Water intensity

Based on data from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers’ Responsible Canadian Energy 2014 Progress Report, our oil sands company-wide fresh water use intensity is 84 percent lower than the industry average fresh water use intensity for oil sands and western Canadian oil and natural gas production.

Members of COSIA’s Water Environmental Priority Area have committed to reduce industry fresh water use intensity by 50 percent by 2022 from 2012. The target for in-situ oil sands producers is a fresh water intensity of 0.20 barrels of water for every barrel of oil produced. Our oil sands fresh water intensity is already well below this average.
