The company earlier reported production at the end of the third quarter of 120,000 b/d from the first three phases (OGJ Online, Oct. 23, 2012).
When the fourth phase reaches full production, total Firebag output will be 180,000 b/d.
Suncor owns 100% of the Firebag complex, which is east of Fort McMurray.
