Manitoba produces oil in the southwest corner of the province. However, it takes energy to make energy
. Natural gas (30.15%), electricity (51.41%) and oil (17.24%) are the major sources of energy used by oil producers in this province.
In 2010, oil and gas production (including transmission facilities)
consumed 5,800,781 GJ and
emitted 335,336 GHG tonnes.
The fuels produced by this sector ultimately make their way to other industrial, commercial, institutional and residential end users.
