Oil and gas production in Ontario is largely located in the southern part of the province. However, it takes energy to make energy
. Natural gas (83.06%), electricity (5.98%) and petroleum coke (0%) are the major sources of energy used by petroleum producers in Ontario.
In 2010, oil and gas production (including transmission facilities)
consumed 35,023,140 GJ and
emitted 1,987,709 GHG tonnes.
The fuels produced by this sector ultimately make their way to other industrial, commercial, institutional and residential end users.
