C. Control Room
The nerve centre of the operation, the control room monitors all aspects of the operation to ensure the facilities are operating at maximum efficiency.

D. Cogeneration
A highly-efficient technology that generates steam and electricity for our operations. Excess electricity is sold to the Alberta power grid, which helps offset operating costs. Learn more.

E. Steam Generation
These facilities generate steam necessary for SAGD from recycled and make-up water in the operation.

F. Phase 1 Water Treatment
This facility purifies water used in Phase 1 of the operation to ensure it is clean. Clean water is critical to achieving optimum efficiency with our equipment.

G. Reclamation Materials Storage
MEG stores all soils and seed materials on our site and saves them for easy and effective reclamation in the areas they came from.

H. Oil Treatment
This facility separates the oil and diluent from the produced bitumen, gas and water stream.

I. Tank Farm
Tanks hold diluent used in our operations and blended bitumen for shipment on the Access Pipeline.

J. Utilities

K. Water Recycle Ponds
These ponds provide a storage area for water recovered from the steam production process. This water is recycled back into the operation.

L. Phase 2 Water Treatment
This facility purifies water used in Phase 2 of the operation to ensure it is clean. Clean water is critical to achieving optimum efficiency with our equipment.

M. Storm Water Retention Pond
This holding area collects storm water. All runoff water from the site is retained and tested to ensure it meets Alberta Environment and Water surface water quality requirements prior to being released into the environment.

N. Future Site of Phase 2B
A 35,000 bpd SAGD facility anticipated to begin production in 2013.
