Nexen Energy ULC to Eliminate 350 Jobs in 2016

Nexen Energy ULC it will eliminate 350 jobs in 2016 after deciding not to repair its Long Lake oilsands upgrader in northern Alberta following an explosion in January. Nexen plans to continue producing bitumen from Long Lake and to make a decision about whether to again pursue upgrading at the site later this year, taking into consideration changing market conditions. The explosion of a hydrocracker in the upgrader that killed two Nexen employees is among recent challenges for CNOOC in Canada, which also included a pipeline leak last year at Long Lake and a May wildfire that forced production offline. Production at the site is ramping up from just under 15,000 bbls a day currently to a targeted 27,000 bbls a day in August.
