Petcoke can be used just like coal. 15 to 30 percent of a barrel of bitumen can end up as petcoke, depending on the upgrading and refining process used. So a non-trivial proportion of the bitumen extracted results essentially in coal not oil.
It comes from the bitumen in tar sands. Cheap and dirty.
