May 3 (Bloomberg) -- The Syncrude upgrader near Fort McMurray, Alberta, will undergo six weeks of maintenance in September and October, Suncor Energy Inc., a member of the joint venture that owns the plant, said in a statement.

Suncor has advanced some work that was originally planned for later this year at another unit, Upgrader 2, to take place during six weeks of work scheduled for the second quarter, the company said. The upgrader is also near Fort McMurray.

Suncor has scheduled two weeks of planned maintenance on equipment at the Firebag mining site in September and two weeks near the end of the third quarter at its MacKay mining site, the company said. The two work periods will overlap.

Terra Nova, a production field about 218 miles (350 kilometers) off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, will undergo four weeks of maintenance during the third quarter. A 15-week dockside maintenance program originally scheduled for this year is expected to be delayed until 2012.

The White Rose production field, about 218 miles (350 kilometers) east of St. John’s has 16 days of planned work scheduled for July of this year, and the work may be reduced in duration, according to the statement.

The Buzzard field, in the Central North Sea, is expected to undergo maintenance in the third quarter of this year, according to the statement.
