Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present a combined energy optimization model for the Canadian Oil Sands industry operations. The model estimates the most suitable oil producers (energy demanders) along with the required energy frame (energy suppliers) that minimize the Oil Sands energy costs. The present model was used to project the Oil Sands operation into the years 2030 and 2040. The results show that the model is a practical tool to study the Oil Sands operations in terms of energy costs, future production scenarios, key techno-economic parameters, and uncertainty.
