Pipeline Project Details
CANADIAN NATURAL RESOURCES LIMITED Permit #53905 total 5KM
Canadian Natural commenced steam injection at the Kirby South Phase 1 project in September 2013. Kirby South operations are located approximately 85 km northeast of Lac La Biche. This is the first project that we have undertaken in the Athabasca Oil Sands area. The project targets the McMurray reservoir and uses Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) technology for the recovery of bitumen from the in situ oil sands resources. The project includes a central bitumen processing facility with production capacity of 40,000 bbl/d of bitumen.Canadian Natural began construction of Kirby North, shortly after receiving regulatory approval in May 2014.
Kirby North operations target the McMurray reservoir and will employ SAGD technology for the recovery of bitumen. In the first quarter of 2015, the Kirby North project was deferred due to the fall in commodity prices. In 2016, the Company worked through the Kirby North construction process and its targeted drilling plans in order to ensure cost savings identified could be captured. In late 2017, the Company reinitiated the Kirby North project with planned construction and well-pair drilling in 2018 and 2019. A result of top tier execution and strong productivity, the project achieved first oil in Q2/19. The ramp up of Kirby North is ahead of schedule and has been top tier with July 2020 production averaging approximately 43,200 bbl/d, exceeding the nameplate capacity of 40,000 bbl/d.
