Alberta Wildfires Prompt Oil Firms to Suspend Production and Evacuate Staff

Several energy companies have suspended oil operations and evacuated non-essential staff from northeastern Alberta as nearly 20 wildfires rage out of control in the remote rural region.
At least 233,000 barrels per day of oil sands production, 9% of Alberta’s total oil sands output, has been suspended in Alberta’s northeast because of the fire risk.
