1. Collaboration Over Competition
July 04, 2013

The oil sands industry near Fort McMurray and throughout the province does not always garner a positive reputation. The area has been booming, and indeed there is need for more housing and apartments in Fort McMurray. Though the industry has been the primary source of economic prosperity in the region many of its critics feel that those fortunes have come at a price to the environment. A group of companies has joined together to change those opinions. The Oil Sands Leadership Initiative (OSLI) is a collaborative network between ConocoPhillips Canada, Nexen Inc., Shell Canada, Statoil Canada, S... (read more)

2. A Decade of Positive Impact
June 30, 2013

Shell Canada recently celebrated 10 years of operating in the Athabasca Oil Sands region near Fort McMurray. This article will give a brief overview of some of the positive highlights which involvement in the region has generated. The company started with six employees in 2003. Today, its local operations employ 3,400 full-time workers and contractors, and produces 250,000 barrels of oil daily (this variety of technical labor is part of what drives the local economy as well as its housing and other services). In August 2012 the company passed the 500 million barrel mark of production in t... (read more)

3. Arena Planned for Fort McMurray Downtown
June 26, 2013

In a few years, the residents of downtown apartments in Fort McMurray will be blocks away from enjoying hockey games, concerts, rodeos and family shows. One of the key components of the City Centre Redevelopment Plan is a Sports and Entertainment Centre, currently scheduled to open in 2016 or 2017. Based on the proven success of 5,000 to 7,000 arenas in similar sized communities in Canada, City Centre's complex will give its urban core a place to host year-round indoor sporting events, festivals and trade shows. Officials are hopeful the facility can attract 100 events a year and be in use ... (read more)

4. A Closer Look At Fort McMurray's Cost Of Living
June 25, 2013

The residents of Fort McMurray enjoy a much higher income when compared with the province of Alberta and the nation as a whole, with a cost of living that statistics show is very manageable. Wood Buffalo residents enjoy household incomes that, on average, are slightly more than double the national average of Canada. As a result, Wood Buffalo residents pay a premium for some necessities such as housing and transportation. Home construction and several projects to improve transportation and encourage use of public transit should improve the situation for citizens. At the same time, the region's ... (read more)

5. Alberta To Boost Canada's Status As Energy Super-Producer
June 14, 2013

Boosted by the prospects of increased oil production out of the Alberta oil sands, Canada is on the cusp of joining an elite group of nations known as energy super-producers. One of the results of this new status: Continued migration to Fort McMurray and the surrounding area as workers will be needed to extract a large chunk of this energy. That means, among other things, more need for housing accommodations in Fort McMurray. Canada already ranks fifth in the world in net energy exports, according to the International Energy Agency, behind Russia, Saudi Arabia, Norway and Iran. But the coun... (read more)

6. Positive News For The Local Oil Industry
June 14, 2013

Oil sands production essentially only occurs in the province of Alberta, while conventional resources underlie Alberta, northeast British Columbia, Saskatchewan and parts of Manitoba and the Northwest Territories. Relative to CAPP's 2012 report, production at the latter end of the outlook period from 2020 to 2030 is higher than previously forecast and shows an average annual growth of 200,000 b/d. Conventional production is forecast to contribute about 1.4 million b/d to the total output; the impact of the steep declines expected from mature fields is expected to be entirely offset by producti...

7. Regional Population Expected to Double in 20 Years
June 08, 2013

In 20 years, the population of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo will more than double, from 104,000 in 2010 to a projected 231,000 by 2030. That's according to a recent Economic and Development Market Study for City Centre McMurray. It is also estimated that 85 percent of RMWB's population in 2030 will live in the urban service area, which is Fort McMurray, with the remaining residents located in rural areas or project accommodations. It is assumed the population increase will stimulate a diversification of local employment away from the oil and gas sector. Total employment in RMW... (read more)

8. Power Prices In Alberta Are Going Up
June 03, 2013

According to a report that was recently released by the National Energy Board, consumers living in houses and furnished accommodations in Fort McMurray and all Albertan residents alike will pay more for their electricity this summer. The price of energy in Alberta is expected to go up by 16% during the coming summer. An analyst at the National Energy Board said prices could rise even higher than 16% with the recent surprise from TransAlta who announced that one of their vital plants, a 1983-vintage device, which was out of service since March due to a winding failure was expected to be bac...

9. Fort McMurray: More Than Meets the Eye
May 24, 2013

There is a lot more to Fort McMurray than mobile workers and oil sands. The city, which is located in the northeastern region of Alberta some 450 kms from the province's capital city of Edmonton, is often kindly referred to as 'Alberta's Northern Light'. Those who have experienced Fort McMurray may also have experienced the Aurora Borealis, or northern lights, for which the town is nicknamed. From a remote trading post that expanded to include a salt plant and eventually sawmills, Fort McMurray's latest addition has been the one with the most impact. The discovery of the Athabasca oil sand... (read more)

10. Neighbourhoods in Fort McMurray
May 19, 2013

Fort McMurray's economy is booming due to its vast oil sands where billions of barrels of oil can be found. It is the largest settlement in Athabasca Oil Sands. Even though Fort McMurray feels like a city, it actually lost its city status in 1995 when it merged with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The healthy economy and beautiful landscape is attracting many people to the region, and the population is continuing to soar. The city is located on the boreal forest between two rivers, and is divided into neighbourhoods and districts. The neighbourhoods can easily all be reached with pu... (read more)

11. One Weekend in Fort McMurray
May 14, 2013

A recent study of the mobile workers stationed on the various sites scattered around the oil sands that surround Fort McMurray showed that a worryingly high amount of the workers never actually ventured into the city (or urban service area to give it its proper name) of Fort McMurray itself. The 2012 census showed that whereas 9.1% of the workers questioned stated that they visited Fort McMurray once a week, a startling 28% said they never visited at all. Reasons for this included the unsociable shifts - many of Fort McMurray's amenities were likely to be closed when they did happen to hav... (read more)

14. A Tale of Five Historic Ships
May 11, 2013

The Fort McMurray historical society is on a mission to develop a Marine Park Museum, where they will showcase five ships. The Marine Park Museum occupies 4-acres on Clearwater Drive, which is the original site of the shipyards, and the only one left in Alberta. The ships that are showcased in the Marine Park Museum were vital to the transportation of freight headed North along the Athabasca and Clearwater rivers. The ships travelled North every spring after the breakup of the ice on the rivers. Freight and passengers were transferred from the railway to these boats to go up North. The ships a... (read more)

18. Accommodation in Fort McMurray
April 27, 2013

Due to the fact that it is located in the centre of the Athabasca Oil sands, one of Canada's richest and most profitable natural resources, thousands of people come to Fort McMurray every year looking for work. The amount of oil deposited in the oil sands puts Canada second only to Saudi Arabia when it comes to oil reserves. There's enough bitumen (a raw form of crude oil) within the sands to keep the booming business going for at least the next two hundred years. It's not surprising, then, that the latest census in 2012 put the current workforce at around 34,000 people, nor is it surprisi... (read more)
