The wheel of oil sands
This is a retired tire used on oil sands heavy haulers at Fort McMurray: 4-meter high, 15,000 kg in weight. A new one costs as much as a SUV and lasts merely 12 to 15 months.
Alberta's oil sands contain the biggest known reserve of oil in the world. An estimated 1.7 to 2.5 trillion barrels of oil are trapped in a complex mixture of sand, water and clay. With oil prices reaching US$80 per barrel, oil sands have brought much prosperity and growing pain to the province. The average price of a 3-bedroom house in Fort McMurray is around $600,000. Due to severe labour shortage, the oil companies have to not only attract labour from other provinces but also hire foreign workers from as far as Asia. The Starbucks coffee shops in Fort McMurray often have a long lineup of 40-50 people.
