Suncor Posts Oil Sands Production Average for December

Suncor Energy reported today that production at its oil sands facility during December averaged approximately 235,000 barrels per day (bpd). With the completion on schedule of unplanned maintenance activities following a fire in late November, the company achieved its revised production target for the month despite inclement weather conditions. Annual oil sands production during 2008 averaged approximately 228,000 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. Fourth quarter and full-year 2008 production volumes will be confirmed when Suncor's fourth quarter results are released on January 20, 2009.
