Cenovus seeks expansion at Christina Lake in Alberta

Cenovus FCCL Ltd., Calgary, has applied to the Alberta Energy Regulator for an expansion at the Christina Lake thermal project.

Phase H expansion of the Phases A-G central processing facility would increase overall bitumen production capacity to 49,284 cu m/day and increase steam production capacity to 89,696 cu m/day cold water equivalent.

Cenovus has also applied to expand the currently approved project area to the east. Expansion would include an additional 743 steam-assisted gravity drainage well pairs on 72 well pads for long-term development, bringing the total to 2,155 SAGD well pairs on 203 pads.

Bitumen would be produced from the Wabiskaw-McMurray deposit. Phases A-G are about 20 km southeast of Conklin and 120 km north of Lac La Biche.
