In 2010, the industrial sector
consumed 58,577,860 GJ of oil and
emitted 4,211,632 GHG tonnes.
Agriculture is the biggest industrial consumer of oil in Saskatchewan, but oil is the source of only 13.64% of total energy use in the industrial sector overall. This percentage is relatively low because Saskatchewan's industrial mix, when looked at from the point of view of energy consumption, is dominated by petroleum production, which relies more on natural gas, and by coal-fired electricity generation.
