But with U.S. crude back at about US$49, demand for the sand needed for hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in shale formations is also rebounding.
CALGARY - Signs of the Canadian oil and gas industry's recovery from a punishing two-year downturn are emerging in unlikely places, including fine grains of sand.

Gregory Paul Gavin Without Notley there would be no pipelines approved no diversfication Alberta wouldn't be leading the country in economic growth there would not be more schools built there would not be a new cancer treatment centre there would be no new hospitals Alberta wouldn't have the lowest debt to GNP.

Terry Mayer Gregory Notley had nothing to do with the Keystone approval. In fact she was against it when the NDP first took power in Alberta. Facts...

Gregory Paul Gavin Terry Mayer Nonsense that was Fake News , Notley has always been pro oil . She went down to fight Washington to remove tariffs off the KXL oil from Alberta that Trump had put on. She came back victorious . Those tariffs would have been costly to the Alberta oil sands.

Gregory Paul Gavin Terry Mayer You too have missed what Notley has done for the Alberta oil industry . The conservatives were complacent and really wanted the industry to fail with Notley .

Julie Ali Gregory Paul Gavin Notley has been pro oil? ??? What the heck?? Don't you remember her yapping against fracking BEFORE she got to head office? http://www.ernstversusencana.ca/fracking-review-sought.../ Fracking Review Sought By Alberta NDP Environment Critic Rachel Notley by The Canadian Press, August 22, 2012
“If we don’t get a better … understanding of what’s safe for Albertans, we run the risk of doing some really long-term damage,” Notley said Tuesday. “In Alberta, we have no regulation — at all — that specifically covers fracking activity.”
Julie Ali Gregory Paul Gavin What has Ms Notley done? She just handed over $30 million to the oil and gas industry to pay for their liabilities. That's our tax dollars. Why are we paying for the costs of running business in Alberta for the richest sector of our economy? Why are we paying for the orphan well program? Guess the NDP are worse than the PCs in submission to big oil. The PCs were on their knees to the industry and Notley is on her belly.

Nearly a decade ago EnCana, one of the world’s largest natural gas producers, began a risky and experimental drilling program that required intense hydraulic fracturing for shallow coalbed methane (Horseshoe Canyon Formation) throughout central Alberta.

Hydraulic fracturing blasts open oil, gas and coal formations with highly pressurized volumes of water, sand and undisclosed chemical fluids or gases. The technology has boosted natural gas reserves but has become the subject of serious government investigations throughout North America due to surface and groundwater contamination.
