Christina Lake

Located in the southern Athabasca region, MEG’s Christina Lake Project is a multi-phased project is located 150 kilometres south of Fort McMurray in northeast Alberta.

Comprised of approximately 200 square kilometres of leases, this SAGD operation currently has regulatory approvals in place to produce approximately 210,000 bpd.

The project first came on-stream in 2008 when Phase 1 began producing at a design capacity of 3,000 bpd.

1

Tank Farm

Tanks hold diluent used in our operations and blended bitumen for shipment on the Access Pipeline

2

Storm Ponds

This holding area collects storm water. All runoff water from the site is retained and tested to ensure it meets Alberta Environment and Water surface water quality requirements prior to being released into the environment.

3

Oil Treatment

This facility separates the oil and diluent from the produced bitumen, gas and water.

4

Cogeneration

A highly-efficient technology that generates steam and electricity for our operations. Excess electricity is sold to the Alberta power grid, which helps offset operating costs. Learn more.

5

Water Recycling Ponds

These ponds provide a storage area for water recovered from the steam production process. This water is recycled back into the operation.

6

Steam Emulsion & Natural Gas Lines

Above-ground pipelines carrying steam, gas and an emulsion of bitumen and water from well pads to MEG’s Central Processing Facility.

7

Well Pad

SAGD technology allows well pairs to produce from one well pad, which reduces our surface footprint and increases operational efficiency. Because MEG's oil extraction occurs deep below the surface, natural ecosystems, including wetlands, trees and lakes are protected.

8

Wildlife Crossing

These crossings are strategically placed over our above-ground pipelines. They are designed to maintain habitat connectivity and encourage wildlife movement in and around our project area.

Our Process

Technology

MEG’s innovative technologies drive down steam to oil ratios (SOR) and decrease GHG emissions intensity.
