Redford says India keen for oilsands exports

EDMONTON — Premier Alison Redford says the government of India is keen on tapping into Alberta’s oilsands bitumen for its rapidly expanding economy.

Redford says the oilsands were just one topic she discussed with India’s energy minister during her trade mission to India.

Redford says the southeast Asian country’s growing middle class needs imports of oil and gas.

She says the energy minister also talked about shale gas development and India taking a stronger role in developing the oilsands.

Redford is in India for the remainder of the week.

She has signed two deals to increase agricultural trade, and has opened a new Alberta trade office in New Delhi.
