Welcome to Fort McMurray
Gateway to the north, and home to 176 km2 of oil sands
As of 2006, oil sands production had increased to 1.126 million barrels per day. At that point oil sands were the source of 62% of Alberta's total oil production and 47% of all oil produced in Canada. As of 2010, oil sands production had increased to over 1.6 million barrels per day, where 53% of this was produced by surface mining and 47% by in-situ. The Alberta government believes this level of production could reach 3.5 Mbl/d by 2020 and possibly 5 Mbl/d by 2030. In 2012, the actual oil production from oil sands was 1.8 Mbl/d.
Fort McMurray is a tribute to the rogues, fortune hunters, idealists and adventurers who helped to open up the Canadian North. Thanks to continuing advances in technology and the oil sand companies pioneering spirit, the future has never looked brighter.
