CNRL files OSCA application with AER for Grouse oil sands project

Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. has submitted an Oil Sands Conservation Act application with Alberta Energy Regulator for its Grouse steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) project.

CNRL envisions as many as 161 SAGD well pairs from 23 surface pads, a central processing facility, and 50,000 b/d of bitumen from the McMurray formation (OGJ Online, Sept. 19, 2013).

AER said clearing and lease construction is scheduled for fourth-quarter 2015, with major facility construction beginning in fourth-quarter 2017 and steaming in fourth-quarter 2019. Expected life of the project is 20 years.

The site is about 75 km northeast of Lac La Biche and 47 km southwest of the hamlet of Conklin.
