Monthly Oil Sands Production

Effective Jan. 1, 2014, Suncor will no longer be posting Oil Sands monthly production numbers. Archived monthly production numbers are available below. For further inquiries, please call Investor Relations at 1-800-558-9071 or email at

On a monthly basis, Suncor Energy reports production numbers from its oil sands operation in order to provide stakeholders with a more timely review of operational performance. These numbers include upgraded sweet and sour synthetic crude oil and diesel, as well as non-upgraded bitumen sold directly to the market, from all Suncor-operated facilities. They do not include Suncor’s proportionate production share from the Syncrude joint venture.

These numbers are preliminary and subject to adjustment. Monthly totals may differ from the year-to-date total due to rounding, the impact of sales and changes in inventory. Quarterly Production volumes will be confirmed in Suncor’s quarterly reports to shareholders.
