Syncrude Planning April Turnaround at Oil Sands Mining and Upgrading Facility

Reuters, February 8, 2017

The Syncrude oil sands project in northern Alberta will undergo planned maintenance on a fluid coker and associated units starting in late April and lasting until June, a Syncrude Canada spokesman said on Tuesday. Spokesman Will Gibson did not specify how much synthetic crude output will be impacted by the turnaround, but said it had been factored into annual guidance. The 350,000 barrel per day oil sands mining and upgrading project, which is majority-owned by Suncor Energy, usually has maintenance in the spring.
