Nabiye Project - Cold Lake - High

Oil Sands - Execution


Location  Northeastern Alberta - Canada
Announced  12/30/1985
Scope  The Cold Lake operations are located in northeastern Alberta near the communities of Cold Lake and Bonnyville. The leases at Cold Lake cover about 780 square kilometers of oil sands and the company operates four plants in the area Leming, Maskwa, Mahihkan, Mahkeses. Nabiye project expansion would add new facilities and 40,000 barrels a day to production. In 2004, Imperial received regulatory approval to expand Cold Lake operations in a new area called Nabiye. Amended regulatory approvals were obtained in 2010 to improve the environmental performance of the Nabiye expansion. The improvements include a 170-MW cogeneration facility to enhance the plantís energy efficiency and a reduced land footprint for field production pads.

Gross production of heavy oil at Cold Lake was, 160,000 barrels of bitumen a day in 2011,140,000 barrels of bitumen a day in 2009, 147,000 barrels of bitumen a day in 2008, 154,000 barrels of bitumen a day in 2007, 152,000 of bitumen a day barrels in 2006 and 139,000 barrels of bitumen a day in 2005. Lower production was due to the cyclic nature of production at Lake.

Imperial Oil operates 13 phases of commercial bitumen production from the following four sites at its Cold Lake oil sands operations:
Phases 1-10: Leming, Maskwa, Mahihkan with 110,000 in 1985.
Phases 11-13: Mahkeses with 30,000 in 2003.

Three new phases of bitumen production (Phases 14-16) in Nabiy with wells, associated field facilities and a plant to generate steam, process bitumen and treat water. Nabiye will increase bitumen production by 30,000 barrels a day and add 250 million barrels of net proved reserves at Cold Lake. Also an extension of Phases 9 & 10 to a new area known as Mahihkan North will maintain production from the existing Mahihkan area and recover an additional 125 million barrels of reserves. The project expansions will be completed in late 2014.
