Nexen ULC, a CNOOC subsidiary, is operator and holds 100%.
K1A is about 12 km south of Nexen’s Long Lake SAGD facility (OGJ Online, Apr. 16, 2012). K1A, designed to produce 20,000 b/d, consists of steam-generating equipment, well pad facilities, 37 well pairs, and water and bitumen flowlines.
Bitumen produced from K1A is processed and upgraded at Long Lake. CNOOC said K1A “is expected to play a significant role in filling” Long Lake, which has an operating capacity of 72,000 b/d.
