Suncor's Production Ramps Up at Oil Sands Operation
Suncor Energy Inc. reported that production at its oil sands operation is expected to ramp up over the next several days as the planned maintenance shutdown of one of its two oil sands upgraders is completed.
Approximately 2,000 contractors were involved in safely completing the maintenance work. Planned shutdowns, which are part of the normal course of operations at the company’s oil sands facilities, are scheduled to provide both preventative maintenance and capital replacement to improve operational efficiency.
The shutdown began May 18. Unplanned work, combined with labour shortages, resulted in the maintenance lasting longer than the planned 30 days.
