CANADIAN NATURAL RESOURCES LIMITED

Brief description:

Canadian Natural is one of the largest independent crude oil and natural gas producers in the world.

  • Second largest independent natural gas producer in Canada.
  • Largest heavy oil producer in Canada.
  • Significant exploitation opportunities in the North Sea core region


 

Canadian Natural Resources Limited (“Canadian Natural”) announces that, together with North West Upgrading Inc.

(“NWU”), it has submitted a joint proposal to the Alberta Government to construct and operate a bitumen refinery near

Redwater, Alberta. Phase 1 of the proposed facility includes a one step conversion process of 50,000 bbl/d of bitumen to finished products

and an integrated CO2 management solution. The process incorporates gasification to convert the bottom of the barrel

to hydrogen and reduces the need for natural gas. CO2 from the facility will be used for enhanced oil recovery purposes

significantly reducing emissions, and when onstream, the facility will be one of the most advanced upgrading and

refinery complexes in the world from an environmental perspective.
