CNRL ramps up Pelican Lake oil production

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, June 1
-- Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. said it began ramping up production from Pelican Lake oil field in northern Alberta on May 24.

The 40,000 b/d field had been shut in for about 5 days because of the shutdown caused by forest fires near Slave Lake of the Plains Midstream Rainbow pipeline that transports Pelican Lake oil to Edmonton.

CNRL expects to reach Pelican Lake pre-shutdown production rates in the next few days.

The company also has resumed 60% of the 3,100 bo/d and 8 MMcfd production capacity from its properties in the Slave Lake area of north-central Alberta. It said that it will restore the remaining production capacity as the electric power infrastructure is confirmed safe and capable of load.

No facilities were damaged by the forest fires, CNRL noted.
