MEG Energy: First oil from Christina Lake's next phase scheduled for Q4

MEG Emery says first oil from the next phase of its Christina Lake SAGD project is expected by the end of this year.

It says it produced over 32-million barrels in the second quarter.

It lost just over $62-million in income, compared to losing just under $30-million in Q2 last year.

It attributes that to an unrealized foreign exchange loss while paying the company’s U.S. dollar debt.

But it is making money from its operations; it says it brought in about $13.5-million compared to $11 million last year.

Christina Lake’s next phase is expected to produce 32,000 barrels per day, and by 2020 with all phases online it should produce 210-thousand.

The site is located 150 kilometres south of Fort McMurray.

MEG Energy also owns the proposed SAGD Surmont Project with a design for 120,000 bpd.

It’s located 80 kilometres south of Fort McMurray.

It’s expected to play a big part in the company’s growth strategy of achieving 260,000 bpd by 2020.
