Suncor Energy Inc., one of Canada’s premier integrated energy companies, works in the development and upgrading of oil sands, conventional and offshore oil and gas production, petroleum refining, and product marketing in Canada under the Petro-Canada brand.

Developed in 2012 by Suncor with Jacobs Consultancy, the Alberta Oil Sands Energy Efficiency and GHG Mitigation Roadmap quantifies energy efficiency and GHG reduction opportunities for commercial oil sands operations and determines their potential impact on the GHG intensity of fuels refined from oil sands derived bitumen.

The work examines potential GHG emission reductions in a real-time environment during the mining of bitumen, the use of Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD), and upgrading. The roadmap identifies GHG mitigation solutions and future needs of the energy industry.
