MEG Energy News Release - December 13, 2017

CALGARY, Dec. 13, 2017 /CNW/ - MEG Energy Corp. (TSX:MEG) is aware of amendments made by Chemtrade Electrochem Inc., the successor entity to Canexus Corporation, to a statement of claim filed by Canexus Corporation in 2014 in relation to legacy issues involving a unit train transloading facility.

MEG continues to view this three year old claim, and the recent amendments, as frivolous and without merit and will vigorously defend against all claims being advanced by Chemtrade.

MEG is actively developing enhanced oil recovery projects that utilize SAGD extraction methods. MEG's common shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "MEG".
