Cenovus Energy and the Town of Bruderheim continue to work in partnership for the community.
 
The company presented at the town's regular council meeting on Wednesday (May 2).
 
"It was a good question and answer and a good opportunity for the new councillors to meet Cenovus who are huge supporters of our community," said mayor Karl Hauch.
 
Cenovus superintendent for the Bruderheim Energy Terminal, William Soini and community relations Jill Salus, gave a 30 minute presentation highlighting challenges of the economy, future plans and more.
 
The Bruderheim energy terminal was discussed. It offers a long term and low cost options with the potential to expand fast with minimal capital investment. It also provides a way to move a wider variety of crudes.
 
To date they have completed track improvement, bridge, new incinerator, upgraded earthworks and relocated the shop/warehouse. They plan to increase train volume and more.
 
Their three main areas of focus are on learning, safety and well-being and sustainable communities.
 
They told council about their two major producing projects in the oil sands. Their Foster Creek oil sands project began in 1996 and is roughly 330 kilometres northeast of Edmonton. Their Christina Lake oil sands project started in 2000 about 380 kilometres northeast of Edmonton.
 
"We hope we can grow along with them as they grow. We talked about their community involvement in their community investment," added Hauch.
 
Cenovus is an oil and gas company headquartered in Calgary with field offices throughout the province, including Bruderheim.
