Canadian Natural Resources Restarts Operations Following Wildfires
Canadian Natural Resources Limited has provided an update on its Pelican Lake and Woodenhouse operations. The Company has now been able to gain access to its wells and facilities in these areas, following the previously announced evacuation due to local wildfires.
The Company continues to monitor the wildfire situation with local officials and was able to restart operations on June 8, ramping production back up in a safe and controlled manner in these areas to approximately 65,000 bpd over the next week or so, barring any changes in the current wildfire conditions.
There has been no material impact, due to the wildfires on Canadian Natural’s total targeted June liquids production, as overall production volumes from these areas have, to a large extent, been mitigated by increased production from other producing areas that the Company had previously curtailed production levels to meet the Government of Alberta’s mandatory June curtailment.
