Suncor's average output from oil sands down in May
(Reuters) - Suncor Energy Inc (SU.TO: Quote), Canada's largest energy company, said Wednesday its average production from oil sands operations fell 32.3 percent to 218,000 barrels per day (bpd) from 322,000 bpd the previous month.
Suncor's oil sands production numbers do not include its 12 percent share of the Syncrude Canada Ltd joint venture.
Suncor, the dominant Canadian oil sands producer, operates north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. In addition to its stake in Syncrude Canada, it has been expanding its steam-driven tar sands operation called Firebag.
