The Fort Hills oil sands mine is located in northern Alberta. We hold a 21.3% interest in the Fort Hills Energy Limited Partnership (Fort Hills Partnership), which owns the Fort Hills oil sands mine, with Total E&P Canada Ltd. (Total) and Suncor Energy Inc. (Suncor) holding the remaining interest. An affiliate of Suncor is the operator of the project.
Our gross loss from Fort Hills was $133 million in 2021, compared with a gross loss of $326 million in 2020 and a $10 million gross profit in 2019. The gross loss in 2021 decreased primarily due to an increase in global benchmark crude oil prices, including Western Canadian Select (WCS), partially offset by higher operating costs.
Our 21.3% share of bitumen production from Fort Hills was 19,935 barrels per day in 2021. This compares to 22,875 barrels per day produced in 2020.
