Canada's Oil Sands: Imperial announces first production from Kearl


Canada's Oil Sands: Imperial announces first production from Kearl

Report summary

The start-up of Imperial and ExxonMobil's Kearl makes it the first oil sands mining project without an associated upgrader. Phase 1 will incrementally ramp up to its design capacity of 110,000 b/d over the course of 2013. We value Kearl, including the first two phases and subsequent debottlenecking, at Cdn$13.8 billion (US$12.8 billion).
