Oil sands mega machine
Innovative Technologies

Suncor pioneered oil sands development. Our early investments in technology helped unlock the potential of the oil sands by improving reliability and performance, expanding productivity and driving down costs while reducing our environmental footprint.

Today, new technology and innovative thinking remains fundamental to how we do business. We invest in incremental and game-changing technologies and pursue operational efficiencies.

We also monitor technologies being developed by external parties to determine if, and when, an investment makes sense to advance the technology or adapt them for our business. 

From waterless extraction technologies to the reconstruction of a fen, learn more about the technologies we’re pursuing to improve our environmental performance in areas of land, air, tailings and water in our 2015 Report on Sustainability.
