Abstract: The oil sands are a resource of global strategic value. History has shown how oil sands development has progressed by building on existing technology platforms. As such, this Handbook is a consolidation of the current technological foundation. It is meant to engage the minds of professors, students, researchers, engineers, and technical operating staff. It will provide them with the technology foundation that will serve as the springboard for the future enhancements required for the sustainable development of our vast oil sands resource. It is their bright ideas and innovations that will be so vitally important if we, as Canadians, are to realize the huge socio-economic potential of this strategic global resource.
