  • The Ministry of International and Intergovernmental Relations is responsible for the following: Coordinating Alberta’s relationships with various levels of government in Canada and around the world. Enhancing Alberta’s national and international presence in areas such as export development, investment attraction and governmental relations on behalf of Albertans. Intergovernmental RelationsThis division works with other ministries to ensure a coordinated and consistent Alberta approach to intergovernmental relations, and represents Alberta's interests in the Canadian federation. International RelationsThe International Relations division works with other Alberta ministries to advance and develop Alberta’s strategic international interests and relationships, and to facilitate trade promotion and investment attraction in targeted international markets

  • Alberta has a population of around 3.8 million. It has been growing as more people migrate here from elsewhere in Canada and internationally attracted by our strong economy and need for labour. Alberta’s population has doubled since 1977—only 34 years.Our two largest cities, with around one million people each, are Edmonton and Calgary.Our fastest growing city is Fort McMurray, in the middle of the oil sands region. The 89,000 figure includes temporary residents there for only a few months. But in fact demand for labour is so strong that many workers fly in from the far side of Canada for two week shifts followed by a week off back at home. “Shadow Population”

  • Crude oil accounts for 60% of total exports
  • Only 20% of the oil sands resource is shallow enough to be recovered by surface mining.So alternative methods have been developed to access the other 80% deeper deposits. These are collectively known as “in-situ”, which simply means “in place”. In regions where the oil sands is near the surface, their extraction takes place in a manner similar to other types of mining operations, such as coal, iron or gold.Where the oil sands layer is less than 75 meters from the surface mining is possible. The soil layer on top is removed and saved for future reclamation of the site. Nowadays the oil sands is recovered in the manner we see here, with giant shovels loading trucks that hold 400 tons per load.These trucks operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to transport the oil sands to a crusher that breaks it up. It is then mixed with hot water to form a slurry that can be piped to a nearby processing plant where the bitumen is separated from the sand and clay using hot water.This mining method recovers more than 90% of the oil in place.
  • Gerry Lynn - ENERGYThose 169 billion barrels of oil sands reserves push Canada to third place in global reserves, behind Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.Two years ago we’d have been listed in second place, but Venezuela’s superheavy crude reserves, which are similar in characteristics to the oil sands, were recognized, pushing them past us to second place. Venezuela has additional superheavy oil that when recognized will likely push their reserves up past Saudi Arabia’s.What distinguishes Canadian reserves from those of almost all of the countries on this list is the fact that our reserves are not controlled by a national oil company but are open to private investment.Of the 21% of the world’s crude reserves that are accessible to private sector investment, over half are in Alberta.Alberta’s oil sands produce about 1.8 million bpd, total Alberta production is just over 2 million bpd.Half of all Canadian crude production is from Alberta’s oil sands.
  • Alberta’s Major Shale/Siltstone Formations The Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB), made up of shales, sandstones and carbonates, extends over 1.4 million square kilometers and contains one of the world’s largest reserves of hydrocarbons. According to the report, Alberta has no less than 15 formations with potential for shale and/or siltstone-hosted hydrocarbons. The most important formations in terms of resource potential include the following:  Montney: A Lower to Middle Triassic conventional and tight reservoir rock in west-central Alberta. The Montney zone is considered a tight play which produces both oil and gas with NGLs.  Duvernay: An Upper Devonian source rock that is present in the "East Shale Basin" and "West Shale Basin" of central Alberta.  Muskwa: An Upper Devonian source rock present in the subsurface of northern Alberta.  Nordegg/Banff-Exshaw: The Lower Jurassic Nordegg Member of the Fernie formation is located in west-central Alberta. The Exshaw shale is recognized as a major source rock for heavy oil and bitumen deposits along with conventional.  A preliminary assessment of the Colorado, Wilrich, Rierdonand Bantryshale units is

  • 8. What Are the Oil Sands? • Naturally occurring mixture of sand, clay, water and bitumen – a very heavy oil. • Occurs relatively near the surface compared to most other major oil reservoirs. • All extraction separates the bitumen from the sand and water at point of production. 8
