North American oil sands market worth $25.8 billion in 2013
LONDON -- Visiongain' s analysis indicates that the North American oil sands market will reach $25.8bn in 2013. The development of unconventional oil resources has grown significantly throughout North America due to sustained oil demand and political will for greater energy security. Oil sands have been a considerable contributor to this development and with estimated resources of between 169-174 billion barrels could significantly shape the future of global oil supply. The North American Oil Sands Market 2013-2023 studies these opportunities critically outlining the current status and potential of the market with a ten year forecast.
The lead analyst of the North American oil sands market report commented that "Growth of the oil sands industry depends on a number of factors; a high oil price and the capacity to export oil out of Alberta being the most critical. Currently many mining and in situ projects have already received approval from Canadian authorities but will be looking to ensure sufficient export capacity before they actually implement their investment decisions. Potential new export capacity to the US and the West and East Coasts of Canada will be pivotal to future development"
