The Fort Hills Mine development in the Athabasca region of Alberta is a major project that calls for installing the extensive infrastructure required for surface mining of oil sands. As they develop these extra-heavy resources, Total and Suncor are complying with stringent targets for mitigating and remediating any impacts on water and the environment. These targets are set in agreement with local communities.
