The company markets third-party petroleum products. It also conducts energy trading activities focused principally on the marketing and trading of crude oil, natural gas and byproducts. Segments The company’s segments include Oil Sands, Exploration and Production (E&P), and Refining and Marketing. Oil Sands This segment, with assets located in the Athabasca oil sands of northeast Alberta, recovers bitumen from mining and in situ operations and either upgrades this production into synthetic crude oil (SCO) for refinery feedstock and diesel fuel, or blends the bitumen with diluent for direct sale to market. Oil Sands Operations Oil Sands Operations refer to the company’s wholly-owned and operated mining, extraction, upgrading, in situ and related logistics and storage assets in the Athabasca oil sands. Oil Sands Base operations include the Millennium and North Steepbank mining and extraction operations, integrated upgrading facilities known as Upgrader 1 and Upgrader 2, and the associated infrastructure for these assets, including utilities, energy, and reclamation facilities, such as the company’s tailings management assets. Oil Sands Base Assets Millennium and North Steepbank: During 2014, the company mined approximately 149 million tonnes of bitumen ore. During 2014, the company processed an average of 274 mbbls/d of mined bitumen in its extraction facilitie. Upgrading facilities: The company’s upgrading facilities consist of two upgraders – Upgrader 1, which has a primary upgrading capacity of approximately 110 thousands of barrels per day (mbbls/d) of SCO, and Upgrader 2, which has a primary upgrading capacity of approximately 240 mbbls/d of SCO. Its secondary upgrading facilities consist of three hydrogen plants, three naphtha hydrotreaters, two gas oil hydrotreaters, one diesel hydrotreater and one kero hydrotreater. During 2014, the company averaged 289 mbbls/d of upgraded (SCO and diesel) production, sourced from bitumen provided by both Oil Sands Base and In Situ operations. Other Mining Leases: The company owns various other oil sands leases, including those known as Voyageur South and Audet. The company holds a 100% working interest in both Voyageur South and Audet. In Situ Operations In Situ operations include oil sands bitumen production from Firebag and MacKay River and supporting infrastructure, such as central processing facilities, cogeneration units, and hot bitumen infrastructure, including an insulated pipeline, diluent import capabilities, and a cooling and blending facility, as well as related storage assets. In Situ production is either upgraded by Oil Sands Base or blended with diluent and marketed directly to customers. In Situ Assets Firebag: The company’s Firebag complex consists of four central processing facilities with total bitumen processing capacity of approximately 180 mbbls/d. As of December 31, 2014, Firebag had 10 well pads in operation with 125 steam-assisted gravity drainage well pairs and 31 infill wells either producing or on initial steam injection. In addition, Firebag includes five cogeneration units that generate steam, which are capable of producing 420 megawatts (MW) of electricity. The Firebag site power load requirements are 110 MW and the company exports approximately 310 MW of electricity. There are also 13 once through steam generators at the site for additional steam generation. MacKay River: As of December 31, 2014, MacKay River included 6 well pads with 95 well pairs either producing or on initial steam injection.
