Second Amendment to AER Suspension Order Allows Nexen to Resume Full Production

On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, Nexen Energy ULC received a second Amendment Order from the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER), which lifts the application of the Suspension Order to 10 additional pipelines at our Long Lake integrated oil sands and upgrader facility. On Sunday, September 6, Nexen received the first Amendment Order to the original Suspension Order from the AER, which allowed us to maintain approximately 75% of our Long Lake oil sands production and upgrader operations. With the second Amendment Order, Nexen is able to resume 100% of our operations.

Nexen is committed to managing our operations in a safe, environmentally and socially responsible manner. We are complying with the requirements of the AER’s Suspension Order, as amended, including addressing the remaining outstanding pipelines, which are not currently required for operations.
