Some of the key factors driving the growth of this market are employment growth rate, demand for oil and increasing oil production globally. The extraction of oil sands and obtaining crude oil requires refining; this process is expensive and reduces the margin for profits in oil production compared to mining of crude oil. But, due to rising oil prices this process has been able to make profits. Transportation is the biggest hurdle affecting the market of oil sands. For transporting bitumen to refineries, bitumen must be blended with a condensate, to meet pipeline qualifications for viscosity and density. Also there is lack of skilled labours to work on these projects.
The technique involved in the recovery of bitumen from oil sands includes conventional surface mining and also steam injection technology. Steam injection and refining is required for making of liquid fuels from oil sands. The bitumen obtained is then upgraded to refinery ready oil products and diesel.
