The Pipeline Proposal
The " tar sands " oil is a mixture of oil, sand and water. The production of it is that they take the oil, sand and water and heat it up to take the oil out of the sand. This process is very bad because it pollutes the air. The company behind this project is called ENBRIDGE. They are trying to make the northern gateway. The pipeline is proposed to go to Kitimat B.C. from Bruderhiem Alberta. The pipeline will come from alberta to kitamat and will be able to be to take canadian oil around the world. A 36 diamater pipe will be delivering 525,000 barrels of oil to kitamat and a 20 diamater pipe will be delivering 193,000 barrels of condensate to Edmonton. When the oil arrives in Kitamat B.C. it will go to a dock where big tanker boats take it. The tankers have to go through a narrow path to get to the dock and once they have the oil they leave and bring it to other parts of the world like China.
