Forward-Looking Statements 

 This website contains certain forward-looking information and forward-looking statements (collectively referred to herein as “forward-looking statements”) within the meaning of applicable Canadian and U.S. securities laws. Forward-looking statements and other information are based on  current expectations, estimates, projections and assumptions that were made by the co-venturers in light of information available at the time the statement was made and consider the co-venturers’ experience and perception of historical trends, including expectations and assumptions concerning: the accuracy of reserves and resources estimates; future production rates; sufficiency of budgeted capital expenditures in carrying out planned activities; the availability and cost of labour and services; expectations with respect to environmental sustainability initiatives; and the receipt, in a timely manner, of regulatory and third-party approvals. Some of the forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as “estimated”,”, “planned”, “expected”, “scheduled”, and variations of such words and similar expressions.


Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve a number of risks and uncertainties, some that are similar to other oil and gas companies and some that are unique to the Fort Hills project and the co-venturers. The Fort Hills project’s actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by its forward-looking statements, so readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on them.


Although the co-venturers believe that the expectations represented by such forward-looking statements are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Please see the Legal Notices of each of Suncor Energy Inc., Total E&P Canada Ltd., and Teck Resources Ltd. For further information.

Except as required by applicable securities laws, the co-venturers disclaim any intention or obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures  

Certain financial measures on this website are not prescribed by Canadian generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Non-GAAP measures presented do not have any standardized meaning and therefore are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Therefore, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Reserves and Resources  

Contingent resources are those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations using established technology or technology under development, but which are not currently considered to be commercially recoverable due to one or more contingencies. There is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce the contingent resources. The contingent resource estimates provided on this website are a best estimate and are considered to be the best estimate of the quantity that will actually be recovered. It is equally likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will be greater or less than the best estimate. The best estimate of potentially recoverable volumes is generally prepared independent of the risks associated with achieving commercial production. There are numerous uncertainties inherent in estimating quantities and quality of proved and probable reserves and contingent resources, including many factors beyond control of the co-venturers. Contingencies may include factors such as economic, legal, environmental, political and regulatory matters or lack of infrastructure or markets. Estimates of contingent resources have not been adjusted for risk based on the chance of development. There is no certainty as to the timing of such development. For movement of contingent resources to reserves categories, all projects must have an economic depletion plan and may require, among other things, additional delineation drilling, regulatory applications, or sanction from the co-venturers to proceed with development.


In general, significant factors that may change contingent resources estimates include further delineation drilling, which could change the estimates either positively or negatively, future technology improvements, which would positively affect the estimates, and additional processing capacity that could affect the volumes recoverable or type of production. Additional facility design work, development plans, reservoir studies and delineation drilling are often completed in the course of preparing an application for regulatory approvals. Once there is a high level of certainty of receiving all regulatory and corporate approvals, and all other contingencies are removed, the resources may then be reclassified as reserves.
