Nexen suspends operation at Long Lake
The company has shutdown its upgrader and SAGD operation indefinitely after an explosion on Friday that killed one person and critically injured. The incident comes 6 months after a major pipeline leak occurred at the same facility. Long Lake has a nameplate capacity of 72,000 bpd but was producing closer to 50,000 bpd.
Nexen was acquired by CNOOC in 2013.
