What is Petroleum?

Natural Gas Oil

When we’re talking about petroleum, we’re talking about natural gas and oil.

Page 6: Hot Jobs and Careers in the Oil Sands

Canada’s Oil & Gas Industry

• 3rd largest natural gas producer

• 6th largest crude oil producer (rank increasing with oil sands)

• Employs about 550,000 people in Canada (directly and indirectly)

• Energy is now Canada’s largest export sector (took over from

automobile industry in 2003)

• Industry payments to governments: $18 Billion

• Over 3,000 products we use everyday are made from petroleum

• Long history: first well in Canada was in 1858

Oil Sands Sector

Oil sands operations sector: Extraction, production and upgrading of bitumen

Bitumen:Heavy, viscous form of crude oil, often found in oil sand deposits

Operations types:• Mining: activities to explore and

recover oil sands reserves through open pit mines

• In situ: activities to explore and recover oil sands reserves in place or in situ, by drilling wells

• Upgrading: converting bitumen into a product with a lower density and viscosity

Labour Shortages

Oil sands operations are very technical and require a highly skilled workforce. Shortages of some occupations pose a greater risk than others:

• Power engineers

• Sustainability-related occupations – stakeholder relations, environmental, health and safety roles

• Human resource professionals

• Supply chain workers – logistics, procurement and contract management

• Managers and supervisors

• Industry-specific workers – petroleum engineers and geoscience professionals

Page 27: Hot Jobs and Careers in the Oil Sands

Direct, Indirect and Induced Jobs

• Approximately 380,000 direct and indirect jobs will be supported by investment in the oil sands sector over the next decade

• Majority of jobs are expected to be in Alberta • Jobs will also be sustained across Canada particularly in:• Ontario • British Columbia • Quebec • Saskatchewan • Manitoba • Atlantic Canada

• Overall, more than half a million jobs will be sustained across Canada (direct, indirect and indirect) over the next decade.

• Additional jobs are also created or ‘induced’ in the broader economy.
