Heavy oil and oil sands are important hydrocarbon resources that account for over 10 trillion barrels (Meyer et al., 2007), nearly three times the conventional oil in place in the world. There are huge, wellknown resources of heavy oil, extra-heavy oil, and bitumen in Canada, Venezuela, Russia, the USA and many other countries. The oil sands of Alberta alone contain over two trillion barrels of oil. In Canada, approximately 20% of oil production is from heavy oil and oil sand resources.
