Terracon is pleased to be hosting an exhibit at the Oil Sands Trade Show and Conference here in Fort McMurray. This exhibition is an important opportunity for oil sands operators and contractors to come together to discuss innovations that can reduce costs, maximize capital and to create more mutually beneficial opportunities to work together, while continuing to build an economically and environmentally sustainable industry. We have operated in the oil sands for the last 35 years and are proud to be a long standing contributing partner in the industry.
We'll have a number of our employees and leaders attending the show and we look forward to reconnecting this week with industry friends and colleagues to share our ideas and to listen to your thoughts. The exhibition runs September 12 to 13 at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Please stop by this week to visit, we are in booth 2209.
Terracon’s annual “Oil Sand Lease Map and Safety Schedule” has been released . Each year Terracon Geotechnique publishes an up to date lease map in an effort to keep both our employees and clients apprised of the changes in our industry.
In addition to the map, we include a calendar of our safety meetings. Each client employee is committed to attending a detailed safety meeting each month and our clients are also given the same opportunity. If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please email us at email@example.com.
