Oil and gas production is Saskatchewan's second largest industry, and the province is Canada's second largest oil producer. However, it takes energy to make energy
. Natural gas (88.88%) and electricity (5.47%) are the major sources of energy used by petroleum producers in this province.
In 2010, oil and gas production (including transmission facilities)
consumed 93,807,190 GJ and
emitted 13,891,960 GHG tonnes.
The fuels produced by this sector ultimately make their way to other industrial, commercial, institutional and residential end users.
