Exxon Mobil has started production at its Kearl oil sands expansion project in Alberta, Canada ahead of schedule; the expansion is expected to double overall capacity to 220,000 barrels of bitumen a day, with the expansion itself ultimately expected to reach 110,000 barrels per day. ExxonMobil says that the project produces blended bitumen with about the same lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions as the average crude oil refined in the United States.
