Phase 1 of the Kirby North project will use Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage to produce bitumen at an average rate of 40,000 barrels per day. This is the first of two planned phases.
Project was deferred due to low oil prices, after $700M in capital was invested. Project is restarting as of Nov 2016, with $650M remaining to be spent. First steam late 2019, first oil expected Q1 2020.
