CALGARY, Alberta Feb 7 The Syncrude oil sands
project in northern Alberta will undergo planned maintenance on
a fluid coker and associated units starting in late April and
lasting until June, a Syncrude Canada spokesman said on Tuesday.
Spokesman Will Gibson did not specify how much synthetic
crude output will be impacted by the turnaround, but said it had
been factored into annual guidance.
The 350,000 barrel per day oil sands mining and upgrading
project, which is majority-owned by Suncor Energy,
usually has maintenance in the spring.
