Horizon Oil Sands is a mining company based in Bitumount, Alberta, which is a hamlet of Canada. Initial examination for constructing an oil mining project in Bitumount began in 2004, and its services started operating on February 28, 2009. It was preceded by a sanctioning in February 2005, when the planning and setup of the project was separate. The mining work force is in the process of expansion, and Peter Janson serves as its spokesman.
The project is owned and operated by Canadian Natural Resources, while there are over 500,000 planned productions for the Horizon Oil Sands as of December 2007. 70 kilometres (43 mi) north of the Bitumount work force sits Fort McMurray, which serves as an urban service area, although the nearest city to the destination is Edmonton, Alberta. Horizon Oil Sands is served by the Fort MacKay/Horizon Airport (IATA: HZP, ICAO: CYNR), which provide flights to the employees respective airports that are near their home.
