Cenovus (pronounced se-NO-vus): Cen for a new century. Novus from the Latin root word meaning new.

Cenovus is a Canadian oil company

When we became a company, back in 2009, we made a commitment to be a responsible developer of one of Canada’s most valuable resources – the oil sands. It’s a commitment we take seriously.

By applying the latest technology and fresh, progressive thinking to our work we’re able to minimize our impact on the environment while safely producing energy resources the world needs. These energy resources transport people, goods and services. They heat and cool homes. And they’re used to make everyday items like detergent, smartphones and sports equipment.

We’re focused on creating value through the development of our vast oil sands assets in northern Alberta, where we drill for oil and use specialized methods to pump it to the surface. We also have established conventional natural gas and oil production in Alberta and Saskatchewan and 50 percent ownership in two U.S. refineries. Cenovus shares trade on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges under the symbol CVE. We’re based in Calgary, Alberta and have more than 3,500 staff members across our operations.

What's important to us

We're proud of how we’re developing the oil sands and we stand behind our actions.
