Nexen Responds to AER Notification of Partial Lifting of Suspension Order

On Sunday, September 06, 2015, Nexen Energy ULC received an Amendment Order from the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER), which lifts the application of the Suspension Order to a portion of the pipelines at our Long Lake facility. As a result, Nexen is able to maintain approximately 75% of our Long Lake oil sands production and upgrader operations.

Nexen will comply with the requirements of the Amendment Order and will continue to comply with a Suspension Order issued by the AER on Friday, August 28 to satisfactorily address the remaining pipelines in a safe and timely manner.
