Long Lake Oil Sands 

Located 40 km southeast of Fort McMurray in the Athabasca oil sands, Long Lake Phase 1 is the fourth integrated oil sands project in Canada and the first to combine Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage with an upgrader that uses proprietary OrCrude™ technology as well as gasification. This energy efficient process yields a Premium Synthetic CrudeTM oil while substantially decreasing the use of costly natural gas required in other oil sands applications. 

Nexen is the operator of Long Lake Phase 1 and subsequent phases with a 65% working interest, while OPTI Canada Inc. holds the remaining 35% interest.
