Update to Alberta Energy Industry Water Use Performance Report
Today, we updated our Alberta Energy Industry Water Use Performance Report. The report shows how water is allocated to and used by the energy industry.
Across Alberta’s energy industry, companies are using less water than what is allocated to them to produce oil and gas. In 2019, the energy industry used about 20 per cent of the water that it was allocated and recycled about 81 per cent of the water it used.
The report falls under our Industry Performance Program which strives to hold companies accountable for their decisions and actions, improve their performance, and share more information with Albertans.
