Resource is brought to you by the Alberta Energy Regulator.
Alberta - November 23, 2018

It seems like everything about Alberta’s oil sands is big: big mines, big reserves, big production, big trucks, and big debate. And for the average Canadian, digging in to all of this can cause big-time confusion.

That’s why the Alberta Energy Regulator has produced videos on the oil sands and related topics designed to help cut through this confusion. The one below explains what the oil sands are, where they are, how big they are, how they’re recovered, and how they’re regulated.

Check out our YouTube channel if you want to explore more about the oil sands or other aspects of energy development. You can also learn more from our EnerFAQs on oil sands.
