The Proposed Project

Suncor Energy Inc. is proposing the construction and operation of two new natural gas fired cogeneration units capable of producing 700 megawatts of power located at the Suncor Base Plant, approximately 30 kilometres north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Once the natural gas fired cogeneration units are operational, the three existing coke-fired boilers within the Base Plant footprint would be decommissioned. Project components would include two cogeneration units for steam/electrical production and supporting structures including a pump house, an electrical building, a new 260 kilovolts substation within plant facilities, a natural gas supply pipeline, and two new transmission lines to export electricity from the plant.
