CALGARY - Alberta Oilsands Inc. has applied for regulatory approval of a oilsands pilot project capable of producing 4,500 barrels per day of bitumen in the Clearwater area, 1.6 kilometres southeast of the Fort McMurray regional airport.
The applications to the Energy Resources Conservation Board and Alberta Environment, originally to be submitted in the third quarter of 2009, were delayed to provide time to re-engineer the pilot project.
"The submission of the application is a significant step in a series of milestones that AOS has set along the path to achieve the goal of commercial bitumen production," said Shabir Premji, executive chairman of the company.
Alberta Oilsands' long-term goal is to create a 10,000 barrel per day in-situ operation using low pressure steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD)

Organizations: Alberta Oilsands Inc., Energy Resources Conservation Board
