Exploration & Production in Canada

The oil sands projects are all located in Athabasca, in northeastern Alberta. Against the backdrop of falling oil prices, we conducted a comprehensive comparative analysis of our global asset portfolio and decided to reduce our exposure to Canadian oil shale in 2015.

  • We are operator at the Joslyn (38.25%) and Northern Lights (50%) mines.
  • We have interests in the following projects:
    • Surmont (50%), located roughly 60 kilometers southeast of Fort McMurray.
    • Fort Hills (29.2%), situated north of Fort McMurray.

We also have smaller leases in the Griffon and Ermerillon projects.
