BP is considering the sale of its stakes in three Canadian oil sands projects, people familiar with the matter told Reuters this week, as part of the British oil company's strategy of retreating from non-core businesses.

BP's 50 percent stake in the Sunrise project near Fort McMurray in Alberta, where Husky Energy owns the rest and is the operator, is the most valuable of the three assets.

It also owns a 50 percent stake in Pike, operated by Devon Energy, which is still awaiting a final investment decision, and is majority-owner of the Terre de Grace oil sands pilot project.

A BP spokesman declined to comment. Sources declined to be named as the information is confidential.

The three projects are located in northeastern Alberta.

BP has discussed with advisers the possibility of selling the stakes, though no final decision has been made, the people added.

If the sale proceeds, BP would deploy capital in more attractive regions, such as the Permian basin in the United States, where the rate of return tends to be higher, one of the people said.
