Sun­cor En­ergy re­ceives ap­proval for tail­ings and mil­len­nium op­er­a­tional amend­ment ap­pli­ca­tions

The McLeod River Post - - The Patch -

Sun­cor to­day (Oct. 25) an­nounced it has re­ceived ap­proval from the Al­berta En­ergy Reg­u­la­tor (AER) for its Sun­cor Base Plant Tail­ings Di­rec­tive ap­pli­ca­tion and re­lated Mil­len­nium Op­er­a­tional Amend­ment ap­pli­ca­tion.

Over the past few months, Sun­cor tech­ni­cal ex­perts have met with Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­ni­ties, stake­hold­ers and the reg­u­la­tor to clar­ify and pro­vide ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about Sun­cor’s tail­ings man­age­ment plan. The ap­proved plan will fa­cil­i­tate the treat­ment of cur­rent fluid tail­ings, re­duce the tail­ings in­ven­tory and de­crease the over­all num­ber of tail­ings ponds on site.

With the ap­proval, Sun­cor will now work to im­ple­ment its tail­ings man­age­ment plan, work­ing dili­gently to ad­dress the con­di­tions out­lined in the ap­proval and con­tin­u­ing to en­gage with Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­ni­ties and stake­hold­ers.
