New Analysis Finds 1.6 Million bpd of Planned Tar Sands Expansion On Life Support

WASHINGTON - New analysis from Oil Change International has found that over 1.6 million barrels per day of planned expansion in tar sands production is currently delayed or ‘on-hold’ as industry struggles to identify a profitable path forward for 39 projects.

“The case for the tar sands is crumbling,” said Hannah McKinnon, Senior Campaigner on Private Finance at Oil Change International. “The tar sands are bad for the climate, the environment, impacted communities, and now the sector itself is struggling to justify many new projects.”
