Report summary

Production and operating figures have rebounded drastically compared to last quarter after project shut-ins and production curtailments resulting from the Fort McMurray wildfires hampered Q2 2016 results. Oil sands operators continue to drive value while grappling with the prolonged low oil price environment. Year over year reductions in operating costs and increased capacity utilisation have strengthened project netbacks across the region.
