CNRL Celebrating One Billion Barrels at Athabasca Oil Sands Project

Canadian Natural Resources Limited is celebrating a major accomplishment at their mines north of Fort McMurray.

The Athabasca Oil Sands Project has now produced one billion barrels of bitumen.

Around half of the production came from their Jackpine and Muskeg mines – both around 70 km north of the community.

Together, they produce around 255 barrels of bitumen per day. Shell Canada’s Scotford Upgrader, northeast of Edmonton, produced the remaining half.

"This is a significant milestone and demonstrates the size and scale of Canada’s oil sands mining operations, ” said Tim McKay, CNRL President, in a release.

“This milestone could not have been achieved without the dedication of the employees and contractors who focus on safe, reliable operations while minimizing our environmental footprint to ensure long-term sustainable development.”

The AOSP started production back in 2003.
