The project would be located about 40 kilometres southwest of the town of Wabasca-Desmarais and Fort McMurray.

It would recover up to about 10,000 barrels per day of bitumen from the Wabiskaw Member over a period of 20 years using horizontal, low-pressure cyclic steam stimulation (CSS).


The project would include a central processing facility (CPF) supported by eight production pads comprising up to 12 wells each and associated infrastructure.

Construction of the project is anticipated to begin in 2019 with initial steam injection (first steam) in 2022.
