(see webpage) Calgary Flaring 1999
  1. "Is flaring really the problem? No. It's the way the industry operates. Because we can control the emissions to an extremely high level," maintains Manis, who blames oil company purchasing managers who choose cheap, open-pipe flare stacks for giving all flaring technology a black eye
  2. [In other words, hide the flame of the flare. The big problem is the CO2 which cannot be scrubbed--RSB]
  3. In Alberta, about 4,400 flares are flickering round the clock, burning natural gas volumes produced from oil wells. Another 600 flares burn at gas plants and scores of other mostly short-term flares are blazing away on any given day
  4. flares disposed of 1.451 billion metric tonnes -- 51.23 bcf -- of solution gas in Alberta

WSJ oilsands Canada
  1. Joining Canada's biggest oil companies in a rush to develop Alberta's "oil sands" are some U.S. concerns anxious to help tap what energy researchers say is the world's largest known oil resource. The snag is that the oil is a black goo that must be steamed out of the ground or mined in giant open pits. It is tough to transport and tough to process into a useful liquid fuel.
  2. More than 17 oil-sands projects are expected to add 1.8 million barrels a day of new Canadian oil production by 2010, compared with 2.2 million barrels a day from the whole of Canada last year, including about 600,000 barrels a day produced from oil sands. Most of the new oil will be available for export to the U.S. Pipelines, power plants and refining facilities are also in the works.

NYT Alberta Energy Good Guy
  1. But Alberta remains the mother lode of Canadian power. The province produced 65 percent of Canada's crude oil, 80 percent of its natural gas and 100 percent of its bitumen, a usable oil made from Alberta's inland sea of oil sands — the largest such deposits in the world.

WSJ Oil Overvu
  1. Increasingly, those imports are coming from places such as northern Alberta. Producers such as Conoco Inc. and Exxon Mobil Corp. have invested $4 billion there since 1996 in the oil consortium Syncrude. Another $4 billion is expected by 2007. The group collects rocky tar in a process that resembles strip-mining of coal more than oil drilling. The tar is hauled away and heated to separate the rocks and then refined into gasoline and other products. The investments over 11 years are expected to double production by 2007, to 500,000 barrels a day.

According to the latest assessment by federal officials, half of Montana, all of Wyoming, nearly two-thirds of Colorado, half of Kansas, a third of Texas and most of New Mexico are in the midst of a drought labeled severe to extreme. Wildfires are racing through the eastern front of Colorado. With 280 fires already this year, Colorado has had four times as many fires as normal.

wsj Gas Line Canada Spat
  1. To encourage producers, the Senate bill would -- through tax credits -- guarantee them a floor price for natural gas of $3.25 per million British thermal units of gas at a distribution hub in Alberta. Although U.S. gas prices have strengthened in recent weeks, they languished well below the proposed floor price during most of the past winter.
  2. Some U.S. analysts say American taxpayers will pay billions of dollars more for natural gas under the Senate plan than they would without it.

NYT Oil Water Wells Alberta
  1. Alberta's oil companies use nearly half as much water as the entire city of Calgary, the province's commercial center, which has a population of almost a million. So it is hardly surprising, with much of western Canada still in the grip of its worst drought in decades, that the oil industry's water consumption has become a bone of contention
  2. from one to 10 barrels of water may be used to obtain each barrel of oil.
  3. the addition of chemicals to water used in oil recovery and the fact that much of the recycled water ends up in deep underground reservoirs meant that "ultimately, it is lost from the normal water cycle."

AzRepublic Colorado River not doing job
  1. The drought-stricken Colorado River delivered barely one-eighth the amount of water needed to supply Arizona, Nevada and California this year, leaving the three states to draw heavily on water stored in Lakes Mead and Powell.
  2. Just 1.1 million acre-feet of water flowed into Lake Powell from the upper Colorado this year, about 14 percent of normal, according to figures released by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. Together, the three states take about 8.3 million acre-feet of water a year from the river and its system of reservoirs.
  3. An acre-foot is about 326,000 gallons, enough water to serve a family of five for a year
