Our oil sands projects are all located in Athabasca, in northeastern Alberta. In 2015, against a backdrop of declining oil prices and following a comprehensive benchmark analysis of our entire asset portfolio, we decided to reduce our exposure to Canadian oil shale.

We operate the Joslyn (38.25%) and Northern Lights (50%) mines, where projects have been suspended.

We also have interests in the following projects:
- Surmont (50%), located roughly 60 kilometers southeast of Fort McMurray.
- Fort Hills (29.2%), located north of Fort McMurray.

Lastly, we own smaller leases in the Griffon and Emerillon projects.

As part of our petrochemicals business, we market polymers in Canada, which are primarily sourced from our U.S. plants but also from our South Korean joint venture.

In specialty chemicals, our affiliate Hutchinson has a production unit in Montreal specializing in composite materials for the aerospace industry.

We supply fuel to around 850 service stations.

We also market petroleum products and related services, including:
- Lubricants
- Special fluids

Lastly, we own a lubricant manufacturing plant in Montreal with an annual capacity of 50 metric kilotons.
