"Many communities in southern Alberta have recently been devastated by flooding," said Pengrowth President and Chief Executive Officer Derek Evans. "Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the many Albertans who have lost their homes, businesses and personal effects in this difficult time."
Pengrowth recognizes the enormous challenges faced by the citizens of southern Alberta and the heroic efforts of Alberta's first responders and the thousands of volunteers who have given their time to mitigate the effects of this event. The company has set aside a fund of $150,000 to contribute to the rebuilding efforts.
Although the flood's impact on Pengrowth's oil and gas operations has been minimal, our own head office, like many others in downtown Calgary, is currently closed and is expected to reopen fully next week. In the meantime, most of Pengrowth's head office employees are working from remote locations.
