CERI BREAKFAST OVERVIEW - AN ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT OF EASTERN CANADIAN CRUDE OIL IMPORTS (NEW TITLE)

CERI Breakfast Overview - An Economic and Environmental Assessment of Eastern Canadian Crude Oil Imports (NEW TITLE)

Canada is the fifth largest oil producer in the world, accounting for 4.8 percent of world production in 2016, yet, despite this, Canada still imports oil.
This study analyzes the potential substitution (complete or partial) of domestically-sourced oil for eastern Canadian crude oil imports. The research provides a cost and emissions comparison of four potential scenarios. The scenarios take into consideration two critical uncertainties; the level of infrastructure available to transport crude to eastern refineries and the general approach to decision-making (market or policy-based).

This session will review four key questions under the scenarios.

1. How much additional Canadian oil can be economically pushed through existing infrastructure to eastern refineries (from west and from east) replacing foreign oil, and how will this impact emissions?

2. How would the cost of feedstock and emissions levels differ if only oil from authoritarian states was substituted with Canadian oil?

3. If there was additional transportation pipeline infrastructure, how much more “economic” oil could be brought to eastern refineries and at what emissions levels?

4. And lastly, what would the cost of feedstock and emissions levels be if all foreign crude was substituted with Canadian crude using expanded transport infrastructure?
