The first plant began bitumen production in mid-March 2015. The second plant is expected to commence production later this year as Sunrise continues to steadily ramp up towards full capacity of 60,000 barrels per day (30,000 bbls/day net to Husky) around the end of 2016.
Husky is the operator of Sunrise, which is located approximately 60 kilometres northeast of Fort McMurray. The Company has a 50 percent working interest in the steam-assisted gravity drainage project with BP, which operates the jointly-owned BP-Husky Toledo refinery. Bitumen from Sunrise can be processed at the Toledo refinery.
Husky Energy is one of Canada's largest integrated energy companies. It is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and its common shares are publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol HSE.
