Canada to boost crude oil production 75% by 2035

2B1st_Project_Smart_Explorer_Sales_Pursuit_ToolAccording to its National Energy Board (NEB), Canada expects to increase its crude oil production 75% by 2035.

In respect with the rising the demand in North America and in Asia, Canada sees the opportunity to target a volume of production of 5.8 million barrels per day (b/d) in 2035.

On the same period, Canada itself should see its own consumption increasing by 28% according to NEB prospective studies.

Suncor-Total-Teck_Fort-Hills_Oil_Sands_Mine_Project_MapEven though the overall energy efficiency in Canada should improve by 20% in respect with the GDP, the shift of the power generation from coal to gas and renewable energies will contribute to increase consumption of oil and gas in absolute value.

This leap should be taken from the development of the oil sand and shale oil for which Alberta and British Columbia still hold untapped reserves.

Canada ranks in the third position behind Saudi Arabia and Venezuela for crude oil reserves estimated to 171 billion barrels.

Considering that 98% of the Canadian reserves are in oil sands, the international companies, such as ExxonMobil, Shell, Total, ConocoPhilips, and the national oil companies (NOCs) such as China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), Eni, Petronas, Sinopec, or Statoil are mobilized to implemeny new processes to make the oil sand exploration production environmentally acceptable.

With the Eastern Provinces importing oil from USA and with Asia knocking at the door, Alberta and British Columbia have reconsidered their export strategy, no longer turned to the USA in the south but looking east and west.

In this new context, all the new projects in Canada are conditioned by the construction of pipeline projects to east and west, and oil and gas export terminals to supply the unthirsty Asia.
