Getting the Message Out on Modern Oil Sands: Lower Cost, Lower Carbon

This week we interview Alex Pourbaix the President and CEO of Cenovus Energy, Canada’s largest SAGD oil sands producer. Alex explains that the oil sands are not what they used to be; new barrels are lower cost and lower carbon. The discussion covers a range of topics including; the Alberta Government’s production curtailment, pipelines and crude-by-rail, plus the potential for lower cost rail modalities in the future.  We finish on the contentious Bill C-69 that aims to overhaul the review process for major infrastructure projects in Canada.
