Syncrude announces community investments to mark milestone

Nov 06, 2019

Syncrude is commemorating its production milestone of three billion barrels through a series of donations to regional initiatives totaling more than $3 million.

Proudly based in Wood Buffalo, Syncrude is committed to building a strong and vibrant place to live and work. The company also supports the hiring of local people who want to pursue opportunities in the industry by investing in education and training.

The new investments will fund initiatives including the University of Alberta Faculty of Engineering for student engagement in northern communities, Tree Canada Operation Releaf program, Inside Education’s Wood Buffalo Environment Education Project, a machining program with the Fort McMurray Catholic School District, a nondestructive apprenticeship program with CAREERS: The Next Generation, an e-learning program with the Fort McKay First Nation and an education training program with the Mikisew Cree First Nation.

These investments also support sponsorships for Girls Inc., the Syncrude Sport & Wellness Centre and the Syncrude Arts Alive Series at Keyano Theatre.

It builds on the nearly $84 million Syncrude has dedicated to the community in the past 20 years. These projects and organizations are a vital part of the community in helping enhance the quality of life in the region.

The Syncrude Project is a joint venture undertaking among Imperial Oil Resources Limited; CNOOC Oil Sands Canada; Sinopec Oil Sands Partnership; and Suncor Energy Inc. (with the Suncor interest held by Canadian Oil Sands Partnership #1 and Suncor Energy Ventures Partnership, both wholly owned affiliates of Suncor Energy Inc.).
