Oil sands - Energy Education

Oil sands are a mixture of sand, clay, water, and bitumen that occur naturally. Bitumen is the fossil fuel component of this sand, and it is a very viscous oil that must be treated and upgraded before it can be used to produce useful fuels such as gasoline. Oil sand deposits are found around the globe in the Middle East, Venezuela, Canada, the United States, and Russia. The largest deposit in ...
