Kearl oil sands videos
The Kearl oil sands project is the largest capital investment in Imperial’s history. Kearl has an initial production of 110,000 bpd and a capacity of 345,000 bpd. The project remains on schedule for start-up in late 2012.
Kearl will be developed as a long-life, world-class resource. In developing Kearl, Imperial Oil’s focus is to ensure a safe work culture where nobody gets hurt and to develop the project responsibly to protect tomorrow, today.
At Imperial, we are committed to developing our nation’s resources responsibly. We continuously strive to improve our performance through a sustained commitment to research and innovation. We also listen to our neighbours, and make efforts to include local businesses in economic opportunities.
Imperial’s research facility at the University of Calgary has functioned as a centre of oil sands innovation since its opening in 1961. Scientists there are focused on improving and developing technologies to advance environmental performance, productivity and economic efficiency.
Imperial is building on the oil sands projects that have gone before through the development of new, more efficient technologies, such as such as our proprietary paraffinic froth treatment and cogeneration.
At Imperial, we listen to the concerns and input from the local community, and seek to share the economic opportunities of development with local businesses.
