We own a 24.58% interest in Fort Hills and a 50% interest in the Surmont project, both located in Alberta.  
Since 2015, we have reduced our exposure to Canadian oil shale to focus our investments on low-cost petroleum resources.
In agreement with our partners, we sold the Joslyn project, which we operated, to CNRL in August 2018 and reduced our interest in the Fort Hills project in 2017.

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

We also own a lubricant manufacturing plant in Montreal with an annual capacity of 50 metric kilotons.

Lastly, we have a 25% interest in U.S.-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp, a leader in supplying the transportation industry with natural gas and renewable natural gas fuel in North America. The company has a network of 550 service stations in North America, including ten in Canada.

We operate in the country through our wholly owned affiliate Saft, the world leader in the design and production of high-tech batteries for industry. In Canada, Saft has developed and installed an energy storage battery system that can work in extreme temperatures in hybrid microgrids to supply energy to a community located around 80 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle.
