Reuters reveals top-emitting Canada oil sands site gets government relief from pollution payments

Reuters exclusively reported that for three straight years, Alberta’s government granted Canada’s most emissions-intense oil sands facility reductions in payments that polluters are required to make for generating higher emissions than most of the industry. Citing government documents, the Reuters story reported that from 2018 to 2020, Alberta lowered Canadian Natural Resources Ltd’s costs for its oil-producing Peace River site to comply with provincial emissions requirements. Peace River’s per-barrel emissions are triple that of the already-high oil sands average.
