Canadian oil sands producer Imperial Oil says it has signed two of its largest-ever contracts with Indigenous businesses.
Two joint ventures – one with the Fort McKay First Nation and another with the Mikisew Cree First Nation – will provide Imperial large-scale earthwork, land reclamation, and mining support services at its Kearl oil sands mine in northern Alberta.
The financial details of the deals were not disclosed, but Imperial said the two businesses will handle about 38 million cubic metres of earth over the next five years.
“Never before at Imperial have contracts of this scale been provided through Indigenous-owned companies,” said Kearl production manager Jamie Long.
