intensity for the oil

Urgent approval

Question from Reporter: I was wondering whether Environment appearing in the last NIR for 2009: Canada could provide more information about this paragraph

From 2008 to 2009, the emissions Intensity of upstream oil and gas production from 4.48 to 4.53 kt C02 eq I PJ (1.1"10).

has increased slightly

During this same time period, the emissions intensity of the oil sands industry also increased (-14.5%). mainly the result of a new integrated mining and upgrading facility as well as a new integrated in-situ bitumen extraction and upgrading facility. Both of these facilities ramped up production in 2009 and were not operating at peak efficiencies due to the required tuning of complex processes duri.ng the ramp-up to full-scale product.ion. I have been told that Environment Canada said in other communications that there was not a significant change in emissions intensity for the oilsands sector between 2008 and 2009. Q1) 00 you have a report author or contributor explain this?
The Executive Summary

from Environment

Canada available for an interview to

of the NIR states, on p 24 that" ...the oil sands industry has been reducing

emissions, and in 2009 intensity was 29% lower than in 1990." (This is based on data current at the time of publication.) The Executive Summary also indicated that this estimate is an aggregate of a number of sources and is subject to change as new information becomes available. Our preliminary information indicates that there was very little Change in the total emission intensity in oi! sands between 2008 and 2009. The statement about a 14.5% increase in emission intensity between 2008 and 2009 is found on page 58 of the Nr R for 2011 , and refers to the ~.ns ity of fugitive G HG emissjons, which are only a portion of the total emissions from the oil aends. The increase in fugitive emission is due mainly to a new integrated mining and upgrading facility and a new integrated in-situ bitumen and upgrading operation. Fugitive emissions are defined as intentional (e.g. venting or fJaring) or unintentional releases (e.g. equipment leaks) of GHGs from the production, processing. transmission. storage and delivery of fossil fuels and are listed separately in the NIR. The full compliment of oil sands GHG emissions include these fugitives as well as combustion emissions. Combustion emissions are generated from the plants. other stationary equipment and onsite vehicles. Q2) Also, can you tell me whether anyone from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers has complained to Environment Canada about the content of the report or pressured the department to revise its figures or calculations? Environment Canada works closely with all of its stakeholders to ensure we have the most comprehensive data currently available for the purposes of the NIR.

RESPONSE SENT MONDAY, MAY 30 The Government of Canada is committed to provided to the public detailed information on the state of the environment and pollution affecting the environment. Canada's National Inventory Report, just published, reflects that commitment the requirements of the UNFCCC. It is highly detailed and fully meets

As in past years, in 2011 Canada provided an extremely detailed report that encompasses the activities of all sectors of the economy, including oil sands. The UNFCCC requires a disaggregation of national greenhouse gas emissions by emissions-producing activity. The reallocation of these activity-based emissions by economic sector is not a requirement of the UNFCCC. In 2010, on a pilot basis, Environment Canada released economic sector estimates In addition to the normal National Inventory Report (in other years this information has always been done and released separately). However, in analyzing the results, the department found weaknesses in the methodology and gaps in the data that prevented an accurate calculation of total emissions for the entire oil sands sector. For this reason, in 2011, Environment Canada has decided to focus the UNFCCC report on the activity categories that are required to provide the UNFCCC with the most accurate and detailed information possible,. and report economic sector emissions separately once the statistics and methodology are finalized. This provides the most accurate and complete breakdown of Canadian emissions. The process of allocating emissions from UNFCCC-defined activity to the economic sector where those activities takes place requires combining emissions from across a variety of UNFCCC-defined activities. For example, for oil sands this includes assigning a certain portion of emissions from off-road heavy equipment use (classified under transportation emissions under the UNFCCC approach), fugitives and other UNFCCC· defined activities to the oil sands sector in order to produce a comprehensive estimate.

Looking to other sectors, it also involves, among others, the allocation of a certain amount of off-road transportation emissions to the agriculture sector to ensure that farm tractors and other mobile farm equipment are represented there, the allocation of pipeline emissions from the UNFCCC category of transportation emissions to the oil and gas sector, and the allocation of UNFCCC-defined process and fugitive emissions to the economic sector that generated them. We will finalize these estimates only after the final electricity generation data for 2009 is available and incorporated into this work, For now, we have a preliminary estimate that oil sands emissions increased from 5 1/2 per cent of total in 2008 to about 6 1/2 per cent in 2009. At the same time, until Environment Canada completes its updated economic sector allocation of greenhouse gas emissions, it is not possible to precisely state the GHG emissions for the entire oil sands sector, as opposed to just one or two activities within the sector. Current national Inventory Report data is available here. Specifically, oil sands data is available on pages 47 to
