Heavy Crude Oil: Global Perspective, Analysis & Outlook to 2035

Heavy oil is plentiful around the globe and will become an increasingly important source of new crude supplies in the future. It is found offshore and onshore; in liquid form as in ‘conventional’ heavy oil or in solid form such as the bitumen in the Canadian oil sands. This analysis and outlook provides a detailed look at the companies and projects that will contribute to heavy oil supplies, plus a yearly forecast by project, country and region to 2035. Heavy oil must compete for investments with other new sources of oil; this report analyses and compares the costs of major new crude sources worldwide. Heavy oil is either processed in the country where it is produced, or exported. In North America, increasing volumes of Canadian heavy crude must compete for infrastructure with rapidly increasing shale oil production. Significant volumes of heavy crude will enter the export market over the next 20 years - where will it be processed? How significant will the contribution of heavy crude oil be to global supplies? Is it necessary to meet future demand? This report answers these questions and many more.
