Western Canada’s history with conventional oil and gas includes nearly 130 years of development with hundreds of operators building infrastructure to access, process and transport oil and gas. Combined with forestry and agriculture activity, an increasing population and an expanding transportation grid, the development has resulted in cumulative land impacts.
ConocoPhillips Canada’s assets in Western Canada extend from northeast British Columbia through Alberta and into southwest Saskatchewan. Our operations in these areas contribute to demands on the land near our facilities, which may impact landowners, Aboriginal people, and residents of nearby communities, along with plant and animal species.
To meet the expectations of our Western Canadian stakeholders, our approach to responsible land management includes the following steps:
We are dedicated to collaborating with stakeholders to avoid development on sensitive land and habitats, where possible, and minimizing our impact on land where we have developments.
