Don't recall ever seeing a figure, but there may be something cited as a
tangent to the substantial evidence on water needed to produce oil
sands--just do a web search for oil sands & water.

I see so much about 4 gallons of water for a gallon of enthanol, but
can't find anything on the petrochemical side....
I called DOE, but they said they just don't keep that kind of data.
There's a report on a conference from OH in 2006 that attribute 8
gallons to a Conoco presenter, but there's no name and .... well, we
seem to have hit a dead end.
Got any ideas or (better) information?
Have a great Thanksgiving....
