Steve Williams, President and CEO of Suncor speaks to the media along with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley on Tuesday.

CALGARY – Production will resume at oilsands projects north of Fort McMurray in the coming days and “short weeks” after an out-of-control wildfire raged through the area, though there is still no timeline for projects south of the city returning to normal operations.

“Operations will only restart when it is absolutely safe to do so,” Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said Tuesday after a meeting with the CEOs of oilsands, pipeline and power companies with assets around Fort McMurray.

Notley said that companies with oilsands mines north of the city, where the majority of affected production is located, would begin operating in the “coming days and short weeks.”

She said there was no damage to oilsands facilities north of the city, though there has been damage to some projects south of the city, including Nexen Energy ULC’s Long Lake project.
