Background to this oil sands market research

Rising Oil Sands Prices Boost the Oil Sands Market
NRG Expert’s oil sands research reveals that rising oil prices have renewed interest in oil sands and extra-heavy oil projects.

Increase in Investment in Oil Sands Industry
Country highlights:

  • In the two countries with the largest proven oil sands reserves, Canada and Venezuela, there has been an increase in both domestic and foreign investment in oil sands projects.
  • Japan, China and South Korea are leading the pack in terms of the monies invested in oil sands projects and the diversity of projects funded. As all four countries are reliant on oil imports and Japan has no fossil fuel reserves of its own.
  • In Venezuela, for the first time since his election Chavez has awarded heavy oil blocks in its Orinoco belt to foreign companies.
  • By contrast, the majority of Canadian oil sands leases have been awarded. Therefore mergers and acquisitions are likely to feature heavily over the coming years rather than brand new projects in the Alberta oil sands region.

Environmental opposition
Environmental opposition and opposition from the US oil industry are stalling the development of some of these projects. For example, Imperial Oil hit a setback when its plan to transport 35,000 tons of mining equipment over the Rocky Mountains was delayed by the Idaho Supreme Court on environmental grounds.
In Venezuela environmental opposition is less of a problem. Instead there are concerns over the ability of PVDSA to meet its goals for the development of the Orinoco belt. Furthermore, Venezuela is still perceived as a risky investment because the oil fields under development could be nationalised at a later date.

Further information on oil sands technology used in oil sands extraction, projects under development, oil sands companies in the sector, oil sand prices and so on is covered in more depth in our oil sands market research report.
