Water use

In 2014, we used about 20 million barrels of fresh water from surface and groundwater sources across all our oil sands, conventional oil and natural gas operations. Our oil sands operations used nearly 10 million barrels of fresh water, of which 50 percent was used for production and the remainder used for other purposes like potable camp water, dust suppression, ice road construction, drilling and construction. The 51 percent decrease in fresh water use at our oil sands projects in 2014 was due to the completion of the dewatering pilot at our Telephone Lake project.
