Consistent dependable service

August 29, 2019

“…I can’t help but notice the MSR road shoulders, ditches and fence lines are being well maintained and cut back. It is a constant effort to keep these areas free of vegetation; these maintained areas act as a firebreak barrier to slow the progress of bushfires…This effort is noticed and appreciated by myself and the DND.”

Exceptional service

June 30, 2016

“On behalf of Shell Canada Ltd.—Oil Sands Logistics, please accept our sincere thanks and appreciation for the exceptional service provided by Canadian Base Operators during the May 2016 Fort McMurray wild fire evacuation…CBO, Shell’s contracted operator of the Aerodrome, was the keystone in the safe execution of this unprecedented undertaking. I personally witnessed the dedication, perseverance and consistent professionalism demonstrated throughout this exceptionally trying period. Based on my observations, CBO employees are firmly committed to safety, recognize when to intervene and are true masters of their roles; never has it been more clearly demonstrated than during this period.”
