Canadian Oil Sands Company to Build Mega Ethanol Plant

26 April 2005

Suncor, the Canadian oil sands company, has received the final environmental approvals from Canadian federal and provincial governments for the construction of a Canadian $120 million (US $96.4 million) corn ethanol production facility. Work on the plant should be complete by mid-2006.

Suncor’s new facility will produce approximately 200 million liters (52.8 million gallons US) of ethanol annually—one of the country’s larger to date. Suncor will receive a $22 million contribution towards the construction of this facility from the Government of Canada’s Ethanol Expansion Program.

The plant will require some 20 million bushels of corn each year.

Suncor pioneered the oil sands industry in Canada in 1967. Since then the company has grown into a billion-dollar integrated energy company that with interests in oil sands, natural gas, and refining.

The company is branching out into alternatives, primarily wind energy:

  • An 11-MW, $22-million windfarm in Saskatchewan, opened in 2002.

  • A 30-MW, $48-million windfarm in Alberta, opened in 2004.

  • A proposed 75-MW windfarm in Ontario.

How many gallons of gasoline does Canada use in a year? From what I could find they use 85 million gallons of oil daily, but the report doesn't separate it out into gas, diesel, heating oil, etc. It would be interesting to try to put into perspective the ammount of ethanol produced from this plant and the total ammount of gasoline used in the country.

PROPOSAL FOR URGENT ASSISTANCE

DEAR: PRESIDENT/CEO

With due respect, trust and humility, I write you this proposal, which I believe would be of great interest to you. I found your contact while I was doing a private research on the Internet for a reliable and capable foreign partner that would assist my family and me. I am Daniels Wilson the eldest son of MR.DANIELS ROSSMAN of Zimbabwe.

During the current war against farmers in Zimbabwe and from the support of
our PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE to claim all the white owned farms in our country, all the white farmers were ordered to surrender their farms to his party members and his followers due to their selfish political interest.

My father who was one of the richest & best farmers in our country, and also the treasurer of the farmers co-operation did not support his idea and so the party members (ZANUPF) invaded my father farms and burnt everything in the farm, killed my father and made away with a lot of items in the farm.

After the death of my father, I and my family decided to move out of Zimbabwe with the money my father kept in his hidden safe in my mother’s house because our lives were in danger. The amount contained in the safe is US$21.5M (Twenty-One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)
and we decided to code the money and move to the Republic of South Africa a neighboring country to Zimbabwe, where I deposited the money in a Security Company for safe keeping as a family treasure.

So I decided to make contacts with a foreign partner whom will assist us to move this money out of South Africa, because we are asylum seekers here in South Africa, and the law of the country does not permit us some civil rights such as owing or operating a bank account due to our status as refugees. So if you consider this proposal, we have agreed to give you 30% of the total sum for helping us to move this money out to your country and 10% will be mapped out for expenses both of us may incure during this transaction and 60% will be for me and my family to invest in your country
as we have decided to leave South to reside permanently oversea. All I want is for you to furnish me with all your banking details and your personal phone and fax numbers for easy communication. You can contact me on the above Tel /fax numbers.

NOTE: That this transaction is 100% risk free and absolutely
