Water intensity

In 2012, across all our oil sands, natural gas and conventional oil operations, we required approximately 0.16 barrels of fresh water to produce one barrel of oil equivalent. Based on data from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers Responsible Canadian Energy 2012 Progress Report, our oil sands fresh water intensity is 58 percent below the most recently reported industry average for in-situ oil sands operations.
