Canadian oil sands companies are typically rivals, but now they have announced a collective project for achieving net zero GHG emissions by 2050. Producers that account for 90% of oil sands production – Canadian Natural Resources, Cenovus Energy, Imperial, MEG Energy and Suncor Energy – have announced the “Oil Sands Pathways to Net Zero” initiative.
This week, our guests – Rhona DelFrari, Chief Sustainability Officer and Senior Vice-President, Stakeholder Engagement at Cenovus and Pam McIntyre, Senior Vice-President, Safety, Risk Management and Innovation and Canadian Natural Resources – join the podcast.
Here are some of the questions Peter and Jackie asked our guests: Explain the carbon capture system you envision, that spans a big geographical area from Fort McMurray to Cold Lake? Beyond CCUS, what other technology pathways are included? What are the cost expectations for the initiative? Who will pay? How does net zero oil sands benefit the Canadian economy?
