GHG Emissions Intensity History for Oil Sands Projects

Description

The term "GHG Emissions Intensity" in the oil sands refers to the amount of GHGs emitted to produce one barrel of oil. Greenhouse gas emissions intensity is regulated on a facility-by-facility basis. Targets are set at each facility and the facility's performance over time is compared against its own approved baseline emissions intensity.

Usage Considerations

Emission estimation methodologies vary from facility to facility, and from Specified Gas Reporting Regulation and Specified Gas Emissions Regulation.

The most recent, approved data is from 2009. However, validation of data emissions from subsequent years is ongoing and will continue to be released.
