Proposed Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) Oil Sands Development
Meadow Creek is a joint venture between Suncor and CNOOC Petroleum North America ULC with Suncor as the operator.
Current plans for this joint venture include two independent in situ projects: Meadow Creek East and Meadow Creek West. Meadow Creek East will be developed in two stages with anticipated production of nominally 40,000 barrels per day (bpd) up to approximately 80,000 bpd. Meadow Creek West will be developed in one stage with an anticipated production of 40,000 barrels (bpd). Both of these facilities will be operational for 40 or more years. Suncor has deferred the sanctioning of both projects until 2023 at the earliest.
Project facilities for both projects will include central processing plants, cogeneration, well pads, electrical power lines, storage tanks, pipelines and access roads. Other infrastructure that may be constructed to support the projects includes borrow pits, laydown yards and lodges.
