Imperial Oil has been a major contributor to the growth of the petroleum industry and to Canada's economic and social development for more than 120 years. Today the company is well positioned to participate in some of the industry's most promising growth developments.
Imperial's landmark discovery at Leduc, AB, was instrumental in the creation of the modern Canadian petroleum industry. The company also pioneered development of the oil sands of Alberta, both through its leadership role in the creation of Syncrude and development of large-scale in-situ bitumen recovery at Cold Lake.
Through such initiatives, Imperial has grown to become one of the largest producers of crude oil in Canada and a major producer of natural gas, as well as the largest refiner and marketer of petroleum products and a significant presence in the petrochemical industry.
The company currently produces about six percent of total Canadian primary energy supply.
The majority shareholder is Exxon Mobil Corporation, which holds 69.6 per cent of Imperial's shares.
The company's stock trading symbol is IMO. The company's shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and admitted to unlisted trading on the American Stock Exchange.
