North West Redwater Partnership’s bitumen refinery will be situated within the established heavy industrial region of Sturgeon County, one of the municipalities comprising Alberta’s Industrial Heartland. The region’s existing infrastructure and access to local resources means the project is further reducing its environmental footprint. Another advantage is its close proximity to major crude oil and diluent pipelines.
Sturgeon County’s stable and skilled workforce means the Partnership can provide jobs to the people who call this community home, thereby reinvesting in this strategically important area of our province.
The County’s leaders recognize that climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing our generation. They also know that carbon capture and storage (CCS) will play a key role in combating it. We appreciate their enthusiasm for a CCS solution and are grateful for their continued support of our project.
