Syncrude Operating At Two-Thirds Capacity After Coker Fire

     By Edward Welsch 

The Syncrude oil-sands project in northeastern Alberta is operating at reduced capacity after a fire at its refinery, a spokeswoman for the project's largest stakeholder said Monday.

A fire late Friday at one of three coking units at the Syncrude project will reduce Syncrude's production to two-thirds of its normal capacity of 350,000 barrels of oil a day, said Siren Fisekci, a spokeswoman for Canadian Oil Sands Ltd. (COS.T).

There is no word yet on when the coker will be restarted, or what caused the damage, Fisekci said.

Syncrude is a joint venture operated by Imperial Oil Ltd. (IMO). The other stakeholders are Suncor Energy Inc. (SU), China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (600028.SH), Nexen Inc. (NXY), Murphy Oil Corp. (>> Murphy Oil Corporation) and Mocal Energy Ltd.
