Water use

The fresh water increase is due to the increase in demand at our Pelican Lake operation, an increase in production across all of our operations, and the dewatering pilot at our Telephone Lake project.

The increase in our saline water use is due to an increase in demand at our Pelican Lake and Christina Lake operation projects. In 2012, saline water use at Pelican Lake returned to average levels after a large number of injectors were shut in due to an active drilling program in 2011. Additionally, the saline water use increased as a number of fresh water source wells were unavailable for use in 2012.
