Typical oil extraction either tar sands, in-situ or fracking, consumes a lot of water. While Canada has only 1% of population but it has 9% of fresh water. Extracting shale oil from a well pad could involve as much as 70,000 m3 of freshwater for one well used for fracking (Olympic swimming pool contains 2,500m3). The well will produce 12,000m3 of oil a year for few years.
