AT a time when crude prices are close to their highest levels in 14 years, Big Oil is turning its back on some of its biggest reserves.

BP Plc this week announced it would sell out of the Sunrise project, a Canadian tar sands joint venture that produces about 50,000 barrels a day.

That can be chalked up as a victory for environmental campaigners who’ve sought to drive oil majors away from such projects.

Equinor ASA sold out of a similar Canadian project last year, while Shell Plc and ConocoPhillips sold assets several years ago. Chevron Corp and TotalEnergies SE also have projects that may be on the block.

On paper, bitumen and oil sands deposits like those in Canada’s Athabasca region are some of the biggest reserves of petroleum anywhere on the planet.

Venezuela’s Orinoco belt contains roughly the same amount of crude as Saudi Arabia. The Athabasca reserves come next.

Yet there’s always been an asterisk attached to the tar sands. While their reserves numbers seem enormous, their economics have always been dicey.

If international oil companies are quitting them now, it’s not because of any attempt to clean up their image (BP, for instance, is taking an offshore oil project as part-payment to its partner Cenovus Energy Inc for its Sunrise stake).

It’s because they can see through current high crude prices to a future where barrels are cheaper, and tar sands can no longer turn a reliable profit.

Such deposits aren’t quite like anything else in the oil industry. In many places, crude is extracted not via wells but with dump trucks and open-cast pits that resemble coal mines more than oil fields.

Elsewhere, the heavy viscous crude must be broken up with steam and chemicals to produce something liquid enough to be pumped to the surface.

That’s an energy-intensive process. Whereas conventional methods produce oil containing about 20 gigajoules of energy for every gigajoule used in extracting it from the ground, the type of tar sands found at Sunrise get just four or five gigajoules.

As the world of 2022 is well aware, energy is cost – and the expenditure needed to extract crude from the Canadian prairie is higher than anywhere else in the world.

When energy consultancies produce a rundown of the most competitive projects, it’s tar sands (along with still-more marginal ones such as coal-to-liquids or gas-to-liquids) that typically occupy the costliest bit of the curve. When prices dip, the producers at the top start losing money first.

That’s why the Gulf’s secure position at the bottom of the global cost curve has made it the linchpin of energy markets for half a century.

    我们了解到,师德这一项硬性指标是红线,毫无疑问应严格落实。基本情况包含个人工作量和保教质量,教师满工作量,不同岗位和保教质量情况对应不同分值,公平公正,合情合理。而让教师们有压力的主要是个人实绩,它包含教育竞赛和教科研。有的教师不擅长,或者平时不注意积累就会失分。对这一项,教师们普遍认为,平时要多参与一些教育研究与各级各类活动,同时也希望有更多展示机会。于是,我们引导每位教师对照指标,根据自己的实际情况,列出了发展目标和需求菜单,以便我们有针对性地提供平台。书荒的福利哦
