PTTEP assists flood victims in Canada
Established in 1985, PTT Exploration and Production (PTTEP) recently made a donation to the Canadian Red Cross to assist victims of flooding.
When Alberta suffered from the worst flooding in its history, PTTEP and Statoil Canada - a subsidiary of Norwegian energy firm Statoil - donated C$1 million (Bt29.56 million) to the Red Cross to help residents hit by the flooding in Calgary and other communities in southern Alberta.
"As a new company to Canada, we are proud to be part of such a resilient and generous community," said Yothin Tongpenyai, president, PTTEP Canada Limited. "It is our privilege to support the important work of the Canadian Red Cross in responding to this crisis."
Statoil Canada and PTTEP Canada are partners in the KKD Oil Sands Partnership, which owns oil sands assets in the Athabasca basin. Production from these assets started in early 2011.
The project is a part of the company's Corporate Social Responsibility drive to mark the company's 28th anniversary and also to achieve its reforestation targeted of 200,000 rai by the end of 2020.
