CNRL resumes synthetic crude sales from the Horizon upgrader

By OGJ editors

Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (CNRL) has resumed the sale of synthetic crude oil from its Horizon oil sands operation in Northern Alberta.

Production at Horizon restarted on Aug. 16. The operation had been shut down because of a Jan. 6 fire in the coker unit (OGJ Online, Feb. 15, 2011). During the past 4 days production has averaged 75,000 b/d of synthetic crude and CNRL expects to ramp up to a 110,000 b/d full production capacity next week.

The company commenced first pipeline deliveries on Aug. 18.
