Suncor's Oil Sands Upgrader Returns to Full Rates

Suncor has completed maintenance work at its oil sands upgrading facilities and production has now returned to full rates.

The maintenance work involved repairs following a fire in February at one of two oil sands upgraders (U1) operated by Suncor near Fort McMurray, Alberta.

Oil sands production during the repair period in March averaged approximately 245,000 barrels per day (bpd). Year-to-date oil sands production at the end of March averaged approximately 202,000 bpd.
