Suncor Underscores Production at Oil Sands Facility

Suncor Energy Inc. has reported that production at its oil sands facility during June averaged approximately 144,000 barrels per day (bpd). Production volumes reflect planned and unplanned maintenance during the month, including a complete shutdown of one of the company's two upgraders.

The maintenance is now substantially complete and operations have ramped up to regular volumes. Year-to-date oil sands production at the end of June averaged approximately 211,000 bpd. 

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 second quarter results are released on July 24, 2008.
