Update: Foster Creek evacuated in response to forest fire and operations shut down
May 23, 2015, 10:30 p.m.
- The remaining staff have now been evacuated from Cenovus’s Foster Creek and Athabasca Gas operations by helicopter. No one remains at site.
- Production has been completely shut down in a safe and orderly manner. Once the forest fire is under control and it is deemed safe to return to our site, operations will return to normal as soon as possible.
We’d like to thank the many outside organizations who provided us support and assistance so we could safely and quickly evacuate our site. We will release further information as it becomes available or you can contact Cenovus Media Relations at 403-766-7751.
