  1. 1. Ports-to-Plains Alliance 2010 Energy Summit Honourable Iris Evans Minister of Alberta International and Intergovernmental Relations
  2. 2. 1. North American Partnership United States and Canada - History of economic and political cooperation - Sustaining the relationship - Importance of partnership and collaborative forums
  3. 3. 2. North America – Trade Total Intra-North American Trade $1,200 Billions Since 1993, $1,000 total trade $800 between $600 NAFTA $400 partners has $200 increased $- 240% 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 19 19 19 19 19 19 19 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20

  5. 5. 4. Ports-to-Plains Mission: • A grassroots alliance of communities and businesses whose mission is to advocate for a robust transportation infrastructure to promote economic security and prosperity throughout North America’s energy and agricultural heartland. (www.portstoplains.com/Mission.aspx) The Bottom Line: • To make North America more globally competitive
  6. 6. 5. Increasing our Competitiveness • Build on our strengths • Safe and secure energy supply • Develop new opportunities – Enhanced oil recovery and new extraction techniques – New technologies that protect the environment
  7. 7. 6. Changing Global Energy Landscape • We are at a crossroads in the history of energy development. – Drive towards cleaner energy. – Balance between energy security, economic prosperity and environmental responsibility.
  8. 8. 2008 U.S. Crude Oil Imports by Place of Origin In 2008, the United States imported 21% of its crude oil from Canada, 15% of which came from Alberta.
  9. 9. Energy Development in Alberta
  10. 10. 7. Alberta’s Oil Sands • Oil sands deposits underlie 54,903 square miles. • Mineable deposits = 1,853 square miles (about 1.25% of Alberta’s Boreal forest area). • Land disturbed to date for mining = about 232 square miles. • Oil is extracted through surface mining or enhanced oil recovery processes.
  11. 11. Energy Development in Alberta • Alberta’s oil sands in context
  12. 12. 8. Oil Sands: Surface Mining Surface Mining: • 55% of current oil sands production • Extraction process separates bitumen from tailings
  13. 13. 9. Oil Sands: In Situ Recovery Steam-Assisted In Situ Recovery: Gravity Drainage • 80% of resource • 45% of production • No tailings ponds • No water from the Cyclic Steam Athabasca River Process

  15. 15. 10. Alberta’s Energy Vision • Provincial Energy Strategy – Clean energy production, wise energy use, and sustained economic prosperity • 20-year Oil Sands Strategy – Economic development – Environmental stewardship – Innovative, responsible and collaborative development amongst all stakeholders – Clean, healthy and vibrant communities
  16. 16. 11. Environmental Responsibility a. Legislated Emissions Targets – Only jurisdiction in North America with mandatory reduction targets for large emitters – Emitters contribute to a clean energy technology fund b. Water for Life Strategy – $600 million invested to date to champion a safe, secure drinking water supply c. Land Use Framework – Industry required by law to achieve project reclamation requirements as a condition of further development
  17. 17. Oil Sands Reclamation: Before and After 2000 2006
  18. 18. 12. Environmental Responsibility (cont.) d. Carbon Capture and Storage • Invested $2 billion to develop 4 large- scale CCS projects • Goal is to substantially reduce emissions • Value-added opportunities
  19. 19. 13. Environmental Responsibility (cont.) e. Advancement of New Technology – Collaboration between government, industry, academic and research institutes – Clean Energy Technology Fund
  20. 20. 14. Economic Impact of the Oil Sands • $1 invested in the oil sands creates about $9 worth of economic activity – One-third is generated outside Alberta • Job creation • Training of skilled workers • Increased demand for services and supplies that support oil sands activities Source: “The Impacts of Canadian Oil Sands Development on the United States’ Economy”. Canadian Energy Research Institute, October 2009.
  21. 21. 15. Economic Impact – US Output and GDP Impact of Alberta Oil Sands development on the U.S. Economy • Increase in U.S. output ($US): – 2010 = $23 billion – 2015 = $69.2 billion – 2020 = $78.5 billion – 2025 = $80.9 billion • Change in U.S. GDP ($US): – 2010 = $11.5 billion – 2015 = $34 billion – 2020 = $40.4 billion Source: “The Impacts of Canadian Oil Sands Development on the United States’ Economy”. Canadian Energy Research – 2025 = $42.2 billion Institute, October 2009.
  22. 22. 16. Economic Impact – U.S. Jobs Indirect and induced impacts of Canadian oil sands development and production will result in employment increases across the U.S. Incremental employment is estimated to be (in person years): – 2009-2010 = 172,000 – 2011-2015 = 343,000 – 2016-2020 = 88,000 – 2021-2025 = 22,000 Source: “The Impacts of Canadian Oil Sands Development on the United States’ Economy”. Canadian Energy Research Institute, October 2009.
  23. 23. 17. Economic Impact - Colorado • Increase in Colorado output ($US): • Incremental Colorado – 2010 = $374 million employment (person – 2025 = $1359 million years): – Annual Average = $1015 million – 2009-2010 = 3000 – 2011-2015 = 6000 • Change in Colorado GDP – 2016-2020 = 1700 ($US): – 2010 = $198 million – 2021-2025 = 500 – 2025 = $740 million – Annual Average = $542 million Source: “The Impacts of Canadian Oil Sands Development on the United States’ Economy”. Canadian Energy Research Institute, October 2009.
  24. 24. 18. A Shared Challenge
  25. 25. 19. Moving Forward in an Integrated Energy Market • We have a long way to go…and we can improve – Willingness to integrate our thinking and act together – Knowledge transfer is key – Openness to explore new energy sources – Meet and beat consumer expectations – Inform the consumer – Look beyond traditional boundaries – Stay informed – Watch the competition
