Build a Rewarding Career with an Alberta Oil Sand Company

With 1.7 trillion barrels of bitumen in Alberta oil sand deposits, securing a job with an oil sand company can be a lucrative career move. It is estimated that 175 billion barrels can be extracted with present-day technology, and with future production developments, 315 billion additional barrels are recoverable.

This translates into very promising prospects for employment in Alberta’s oil and gas industry—from the front lines to engineering, accounting to technical sales—and every role in between.
