Evaluation and characterization of physical properties, chemical composition and behavior of petroleum products is crucial to predict environmental behaviour in the event of spills. This information can inform the prediction and modeling of fate and behavior of the oils in different environmental conditions. Good models of oil and petroleum products fate and behaviours are essential for spill preparedness planning, environmental effects and impact assessments, and choosing response and countermeasure strategies for the cleaning of spills. This database is a collection of physical properties, chemical compositions and simulated environmental behaviors of unrefined crude oils and refined petroleum products (including diesels, biodiesels, crude oils, intermediate and fuel oils, bitumen and diluted bitumen).
Environment and Climate Change Canada provides Spills Technology Databases including Physicochemical Properties of Petroleum Products. This database contains information on the properties and composition of various types of oils and petroleum products.
The Canada Energy Regulator (CER) and Statistics Canada have combined expertise to put together a 30-year look back at the evolution of Canadian crude oil exports. This retrospective highlights some of the factors that influenced the trends in Canadian crude oil exports, coupled with other key indicators, including impacts on Canadian balance of trade, crude oil production, and industry investment. These datasets provide historical Canadian crude oil production, export and import values, investment, trade balance and export values for products categorized by NAPCS Group Codefor 1991 to 2019. These data were compiled by the Canada Energy Regulator and Statistics Canada.
This data set has estimated Canadian monthly production data by province. The Canada Energy Regulator estimates production based on provincial data. The estimated production is also available at this page: https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/en/data-analysis/energy-commodities/crude-oil-petroleum-products/statistics/estimated-production-canadian-crude-oil-equivalent.html.
Canada has abundant resources of crude oil, with an estimated remaining ultimate potential of 52.3 106m³ (329 billion barrels) as of December 2017. Of this, oil sands account for 92 per cent. There are two major producing areas in Canada, the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, which includes Alberta, Saskatchewan and parts of British Columbia and Manitoba, and offshore eastern Canada. Oil is also produced in modest volumes in Ontario and the Northwest Territories.
This guidance document aims to support environmental public health and emergency management practitioners to plan and prepare for population health risks resulting from major crude oil incidents. It provides basic information on crude oil, its hazards, and its potential effects on health. The focus is primarily on acute exposure resulting from major incidents of public health concern.
A literature review, focusing on oil sand products (e.g., diluted bitumen), diluents, spill-treating agents, and crude oil toxicology and ecological studies, relevant to the northeast Pacific was compiled as part of the Government of Canada’s World Class Tanker Safety program. Of the 763 references identified, 14 involved diluted bitumen and other heavy crude oils, indicating the need for further research of these products in the marine environment. Diluent research suggests relatively fast evaporation and dispersion times for this component, however high toxicities may pose a threat to marine biota. Historical studies indicate older dispersant formulations had potential ecological implications, therefore newer formulations, which have not been studied in detail, require full assessment.
An annual report published in June of each year using 2011 numbers that includes: estimates of reserves for crude bitumen, crude oil, conventional natural gas, coalbed methane, natural gas liquids, coal, and sulphur for the province of Alberta, supply and demand forecasts, information on energy prices and provincial economic performance, statistics and trends, and separate information in Excel format showing detailed information on reserves, fluid properties, and other reservoir data on a pool/deposit basis for crude bitumen, crude oil, and natural gas.
This collection of data summarizes the companies and facilities reporting under the Fuels Information Regulations, No. 1. This dataset includes total fuel volumes, sulphur contents and masses, and companies reporting production and/or importation of liquid fuels originating from crude oils, coal or bituminous sand. The information was provided to Environment and Climate Change Canada under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.
This report contains weekly crude runs (WCR) and refinery capacity for major Canadian regions. Crude runs represent the volume of crude oil processed by a refinery.
