Financial Post – Canada: Shell Canada resumes partial production at Muskeg River

Shell Canada Ltd. has partially restored bitumen production at the Muskeg River mine oil-sands facility and begun repairs to re-establish full production. On Friday a major tear was discovered in the conveyor belt that transports ore from the crushers in the mine to the bitumen extraction plant. Shell said yesterday that both the mine and Scotford Upgrader are producing at about one-third of design rate. It expects a full shutdown of the mine in late March to install the new belt. The shutdown is expected to last two weeks. The mine and upgrader together make up the Athabasca Oil Sands Project. Shell's partners in the project are Western Oil Sands Inc. and Chevron Canada Ltd.
