Imperial Oil Limited Cold Lake

Updated: Mar 2012

Imperial says Cold Lake continues to achieve record production rates (162,000 barrels per day in the fourth quater of 2011) due to contributions from new wells steamed in 2010 and 2011, and increased recovery due to technology application.

Updated: Dec 2010

Andora Energy Corporation •

Production at Tucker has increased significantly, exiting 2011 at over 9,000 barrels per day versus 4,000 barrels per day the previous year. Husky says it has addressed subsurface challenges by remediating older wells with new completion and stimulation techniques and initiating revised startup procedures.

Pengrowth achieved first steam at the Lindbergh pilot in February.

Canadian Natural says production increased nine per cent in 2011 versus 2010 due to optimization of steaming technologies and the development of new low-cost pads. The company expects another nine per cent increase in 2012.
