Marketing and transporting our oil

Marketing and transporting our oil

Once we get the oil safely out of the ground, it’s either transported to a refinery or sold to large industrial users, wholesalers or commodity purchasers, so it can be refined into usable products. These buyers are located all around the world. The majority of our oil is transported by pipeline, however we also use rail and marine tanker transportation.

We’re focused on finding new potential buyers, both in North America and around the world. Having a variety of safe and economically viable transportation options allows us to reach a broader buyer base and secure the highest sale price for our oil. That’s why the development of new pipeline projects out of Western Canada that will access oceans are so important. Higher prices for Canadian oil means an increased contribution to the Canadian economy.
