What We Operate

Our balanced mix of natural gas, light crude oil, heavy crude oil, bitumen and synthetic crude oil (SCO) represents one of the strongest and most diversified asset portfolios of any independent energy producer in the world. The Company has completed its transition to a long life low decline asset base through the development of its Oil Sands Mining and Upgrading assets and its vast thermal in situ opportunities and the expansion of its world class polymer flood project at Pelican Lake. This transition forms the basis of the Company’s sustainable cash flow.
