 Abstract: The production of synthetic crude oil from oil sands is an important industry in the Canadian province of Alberta. It also has large environmental impacts, which have not been investigated systematically from an economic perspective up to this point in time. This thesis attempts to quantify the economic value of the environmental impacts of the oil sands industry, and compares them to the resource rent gained from exploiting the oil sands. The present value of revenues and production costs of the oil sands industry are calculated; the total economic value of the land in the oil sands area is assessed; and the economic value of environmental damage caused by atmospheric emissions, water pollution and diversion, and land disturbance are analysed and calculated. In many cases, a complete calculation was impossible due to lack of information. The results show that given some assumptions, the present value of the environmental damage caused by synthetic crude production from the oil sands is far greater than the resource rent that can be gained from production. Further investigation is required to improve the valuation of environmental goods and environmental damage.
