Laricina files Commercial Demonstration Project amendment

Laricina files 5,000 barrel per day Commercial Demonstration Project amendment to its 1,800 barrel per day pilot project at Germain. In Oct 2009, the original pilot project was approved by the Energy Resources Conservation Board and Alberta Environment. The modified project will be a Commercial Demonstration project and increase bitumen production to 5,000 barrels per day and will have several advantages over the original pilot, notably it will incorporate solvent injection, diluent treating and water recycling. These amendments are expected to result in improved product value, lower steam to oil ratio and carbon emissions for the same volume of bitumen produced by thermal processes alone.
