Description

  • The project is expected to produce about 80,000 barrels per day of heavy oil using steam recovery methods
  • There will be 13 well pads in the initial development
  • An inter field pipeline system will transport steam to the wells and produce bitumen, water and natural gas that will be sent to central processing facilities.
