Based in Calgary and operating in the bitumen-rich oil sands near Fort McMurray, Alberta, Brion Energy is a joint venture between Athabasca Oil Corp. and PetroChina Company Limited that was established in June 2010.
With the unmatched financial backing of PetroChina, one of the world's largest energy companies, we are making bold strides in our aspirations to produce 400,000 bbl/d from two high-quality assets: the MacKay River and Dover oil sands leases. In MacKay River, we aim to produce 150,000 bbl/d bitumen (with a fully approved initial phase of 35,000 bbl/d scheduled the start-up in 2015). And in Dover we are targeting production of up to 250,000 bbl/d with Phase 1 producing up to 50,000 bbl/d.
Our desire is to operate the assets with minimal environmental impact. Both the MacKay River and Dover assets will use sustainable steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) technology, allowing us to lighten our footprint.
Brion Energy's best assets are its people. With decades of experience in oil sands projects in Alberta and around the world, we are proud to say our team is mighty and growing quickly. We hire individuals who are driven by an uncompromising commitment to responsible energy development, to the communities where we operate, and to each other.
With high quality assets, a strategic growth plan, and this industry-leading team, Brion is positioned to be a strong presence in Alberta for years to come. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
