Saskatchewan Oil sands

Sask. oilsands could hold 6.5 billion barrels, company says

Last Updated: Tuesday, August 5, 2008 | 9:21 AM CT Comments25Recommend24CBC News
The company developing oilsands in Saskatchewan's northwest says it's found four times more oil than it had estimated a year ago.

Oilsands Quest says it's located as much as 6.5 billion barrels on property it's exploring along the northern Alberta-Saskatchewan border. Most of the property is on the Saskatchewan side of the border.

According to CEO Chris Hopkins, the company, which is incorporated in Colorado and has its head office in Calgary, hopes to start a test drilling project later this fall.

"It's big. We're talking about the potential in Saskatchewan alone, at our Axe Lake prospect, to bring in perhaps 100,000 barrels a day for perhaps 30 or more years," Hopkins said in a recent interview with CBC News.

Hopkins said the 6.5-billion barrel estimate is optimistic, with two billion being a conservative estimate, but those numbers represent a small percentage of the lands Oilsands Quest has tested to date.

"The likelihood of more is very high," he said.

Instead of open pit mining, Oilsands Quest is planning an in situ project, where steam would be injected deep into the ground to make the oilsands material, bitumen, soft enough to transport via pipeline.

Assessments to come
Before the project proceeds, there will be environmental assessments and input from northern residents.

Hopkins said three First Nations have asked the company to hold off on development until there's more consultation. Oilsands Quest has good relationships with residents in its area, Hopkins said, and has agreements in place with La Loche and surrounding communities. But he said it's up to Ottawa and the province to deal with concerns from aboriginal people.

"My definition of consultation is communication. And we're communicating," he said. "There are legal definitions around consulting which are rights-based and interface the government and the communities. We're involved in communicating our positions as part of that process. But we don't have the duty to consult in that sense."

More than 40 per cent of the employees hired to date in Saskatchewan are aboriginal, Hopkins said.

If the Oilsands Quest venture proceeds, it will be Saskatchewan's first major oilsands project.

Toch is dit geen nieuws. Het is al langer maar niet breed bekend dat in SK waarschijnlijk meer olie in de zandgronden zit dan in AB. Alleen SK wilde er nog niet aan beginnen. Ik heb al berichten gezien dat er 60 billion barrels olie in de SK grond zou zitten. Ja zestig.... future will tell.
