Suncor begins 6-week turnaround at oil sands upgrader unit
CALGARY, Alberta, Sept 7 |
CALGARY, Alberta, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Suncor Energy Inc has begun a planned six-week maintenance turnaround on a vacuum tower for an upgrader at its northern Alberta oil sands operations, Sneh Seetal, a spokeswoman for the company, said on Friday.
The work will include shutting a coker unit at the project site, she said. The company did not say if the work will cut production at its oil sands operations.
Upgraders convert tar-like bitumen stripped from the oil sands into refinery-ready synthetic crude.
