Suncor Advances Toward Oil Sands Production Target

Suncor Energy Inc. on Thursday reported that production at its oil sands facility during March averaged approximately 258,000 barrels per day (bpd).

Year-to-date oil sands production at the end of March averaged approximately 248,000 bpd. Suncor is targeting average oil sands production of 260,000 to 270,000 bpd in 2007.

On a monthly basis, Suncor reports production numbers from its oil sands operation in order to provide stakeholders with a more timely review of operational performance. These numbers are preliminary and subject to adjustment. Monthly totals may differ from year-to-date total due to rounding, the impact of sales and changes in inventory. Production volumes will be confirmed when Suncor's first quarter results are released April 26, 2007.
