Canadian ‘Regulators’ approve 3-phase Suncor oil sands expansions

Canadian regulators have approved a 3-stage expansion at Suncor Energy’s Firebag oil sands project with an additional output of 188,000 barrels of bitumen a day, said Suncor.


Oils sands in Alberta, Canada. The three largest oil sand deposits are: the Athabasca Oil Sands, Cold Lake Oil Sands, and Peace River Oil Sands.

“The production phases, given the green light by the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board, would follow the C$3.6 billion ($3.6 billion) phase 3 expansion being built now and scheduled to be in service next year, said Suncor, Canada’s largest oil company.” Reuters reported.

Suncor pumps steam into the earth to liquefy ans separate the extra-heavy crude from the oil sands at Firebag and then pumps the oil to the surface.
