(Updates Husky, ConocoPhillips and Cenovus operations) CALGARY, Alberta, June 30 (Reuters) - Two separate wildfires shuttered oil sands operations in northern Alberta in May and June, forcing producers to halt hundreds of thousands of barrels per day of production. A blaze in the Wabasca region prompted Cenovus Energy and Canadian Natural Resources Ltd to shut in 23,800 barrels, while oil companies have been ramping up operations in the region around Fort McMurray, Alberta, following a huge wildfire last month that forced many sites to evacuate as a precaution. At its height, the Fort McMurray wildfire cut daily production by more than 1 million barrels. Around 350,000 barrels per day of production is still offline at the joint venture Syncrude project and Suncor Energy's Mackay River thermal plant. Most other operations are now back to normal. The following is a list of what oil producers have said about operations impacted by wildfires: Wabasca region: Operator Asset Status Size of cut Total capacity Date Link to story Cenovus Energy Pelican Lake Returned to 23,000 bpd 23,000 bpd 13-June thermal project normal production Canadian Pelican Lake Returned to 800 bpd 47,600 bpd 09-June Natural normal Resources Ltd operations Fort McMurray region: Operator Asset Status Size of cut Total capacity Date Link to story Athabasca Oil Hangingstone Resumed 12,000 bpd 12,000 bpd by Q4 24-May Corp project operations 2016 Suncor Energy Base plant mine Operations 350,000 bpd 350,000 bpd at 06-June Inc and upgrader and restarted, at base base plant.
