An estimated 15%-25% of the tar sand bitumen will end up as petcoke through various refining and upgrading processes. Over 169 billion barrels of recoverable bitumen have been estimated in Canadian reserves, which is only a small portion of the total reserve. The recoverable bitumen reserves are expected to increase in the future, as production technologies advance and oil prices rise.
