Inside athabasca oil sands project

Managing CO2

We reduce CO2 emissions at Athabasca by increasing our energy efficiency and through our Quest project, which can capture and safely store more than 1 million tonnes of CO2 underground each year. 

Managing water

Most of the water we use to extract the oil from the oil sands is recycled. We carefully manage waste water from our operations and reduce fresh water use.

Managing land impact

We have developed and implemented a plan to manage our impact on the land and protect the region’s biodiversity.
