Syncrude Canada Ltd. Reports

The Syncrude Joint Venture began in 1964, with company-sponsored Research and Development (R&D) activities focused on the Athabasca Oil Sands of northeastern Alberta. Mining at Syncrude’s Mildred Lake site began in 1977, and Syncrude has continued a robust and comprehensive R&D program since that time. The goal of Syncrude R&D is to contribute to the body of knowledge that supports the responsible development of Alberta’s oil sands resource, including minimizing environmental impacts and maintaining the ecological integrity of the area in which we operate. Much of Syncrude’s environmental R&D is done collaboratively with Universities, and results are available in peer-reviewed journals. There is also a large body of internally-conducted research work, including research reports, consultant reports and regulatory submissions. Syncrude is excited to partner with the University of Alberta to make more of its environmental R&D work publicly accessible. We hope this information will be helpful to the scientific community and Albertans who are interested in the sound ecological management of Alberta’s natural resources. This collection includes Environmental Research Monographs and a Professional paper series from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, as well as more recent reports. We are committed to adding to this collection as new reports and information become available. Each report contains usage permissions. If you want to know more about Syncrude, visit
