Kearl Oil Sands is located approximately 70 km northeast
of Fort McMurray in northeastern Alberta. Kearl is jointly owned between Imperial
Oil Resources (operator) and ExxonMobil Canada, a subsidiary of ExxonMobil Corporation.
Kearl will be one of Canada’s largest open-pit
mining operations with regulatory approval for up to 345,000 barrels a day of production
when fully developed. The initial development will see production of around
110,000 bpd while the expansion phase (currently under construction) adds a further
110,000 bpd within several years of first operations. Ongoing expansions will increase
output to regulatory capacity of 345,000 bpd through further extensions in both
mining equipment and infrastructure as well as plant facilities. Kearl will be building
its labour force substantially in line with production ramp-ups. Significant numbers
of roles will exist for skilled mining and maintenance personnel – as well
as technical and plant roles to support the growth.
Safety: We support a work culture where nobody gets hurt. We put
safety first. There is nothing more important.
Environment: We will develop Kearl responsibly to protect tomorrow
today. We will act carefully and develop responsibly.
Execution Excellence: Excellence is our standard, not our goal.
We will execute to high standards of business integrity, including quality and cost
effectiveness and meet regulatory and stakeholder commitments.
