Husky moves forward with McMullen Thermal Project

Husky moves forward with McMullen Thermal Project

Husky Energy has submitted an application with the Alberta Energy Regulator for the development of its McMullen Willow Creek Thermal Project, located 40 km southwest of the town of Wabasca, Alberta.

The 10,000 bbl/day facility would extract bitumen from the Wabiskaw formation using horizontal cyclic-steam stimulation. Construction is currently planned to begin in 2019 with steaming anticipated to start in 2022 and first-oil in 2023.

Husky expects the Phase 1 commercial demo plant to cost $452 million. Any lessons learned will be incorporated into Phase 2. The company ran a pilot plant on the site from 2011 through the end of 2015. Although the results were promising, Husky chose not to proceed with a commercial plant due to unfavourable economics at the time. 

The McMullen property holds an estimated 1.3 billion barrels of reserves. Husky has a 100% working interest in the project.
