The Government of Canada will decide if it will approve Teck’s $20.6 billion Frontier project in northern Alberta by the end of February. The project includes an open pit mine that will eventually produce 260,000 barrels per day from 2026 through to 2067.  Teck’s $20-billion Frontier oilsands project has won the backing of First Nations groups in the area, including the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, which has previously opposed oilsands expansion but signed an impact benefit-agreement with the company for Frontier. Teck has pledged to build a power cogeneration facility and ensure the oil produced at Frontier would have an emissions intensity half of the average barrel produced in the U.S.  More broadly, the company has pledged to reduce its emissions by 450,000 tones of CO2 per annum by 2030.
