Abstract

Activity in tar sands projects during 1981 continued at a very significant pace. The bulk of activity was in Canada, where 38 pilot projects were active, 2 commercial plants continued operations, 1 commercial scheme was canceled, and another was put into the "twilight zone." Activity in the United States was low, whereas Venezuelan efforts reflect a firm commitment toward commercial development.--Modified journal abstract.
