Great Dirt, Great People: Petro-Canada's Integrated Approach to Oil Sands Development

CIM Edmonton 2008
Abstract Alberta’s oil sands represent one of the biggest growth areas in the global energy sector. For Petro-Canada, it means development plans for over 9 billion barrels of resource. As one of the few established industry players with both mining and in situ SAGD, the company is well positioned to develop a “built in Alberta” solution to extracting the full value from the high-quality bitumen, guided by long-term sustainable exploitation strategies. Learn about Petro-Canada’s integrated approach to oil sands development, a plan that recognizes all parts of the value chain: “from wells to wheels”.
Petro-Canada is one of Canada's largest oil and gas companies, operating in both the upstream and downstream sectors of the industry in Canada and internationally.
