Suncor Energy Inc. is an integrated energy company strategically focused on developing one of the world's largest petroleum resource basins — Canada's Athabasca oil sands.

In 1967, Suncor made history by pioneering commercial crude oil production from the oil sands of northern Alberta. Since then, Suncor has grown to become Canada's largest integrated energy company with a balanced portfolio of high quality assets and significant growth prospects, focused on operational excellence, with the assets, people and financial strength to compete globally.

Suncor has a track record of delivering responsible growth and generating strong returns for shareholders.
