Steam to oil ratio
The average SOR in 2014 at our Foster Creek oil sands project was 2.6 and 1.8 at our Christina Lake oil sands project. Both are well below the industry average of 3.0. Using less steam to produce a barrel of oil means we use less water. It also means less natural gas is burned to create steam for steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD), which results in fewer emissions.
