MEG Energy is focused on sustainable in situ thermal oil development and production with a large, wholly-controlled resource base concentrated in the southern Athabasca region of Alberta.

MEG owns approximately 1,100 square kilometres of leases which includes two key areas:

Christina Lake

The Christina Lake Project is currently the focus of MEG’s oil development.

The Surmont Project is a proposed multi-phased development with a total design capacity of approximately 120,000 bpd.

Beneath the surface of MEG's Christina Lake leases are an estimated 2 billion barrels of proved plus probable reserves. This large resource base is the foundation of our current production and future growth plans.

Our Operating Priorities

At MEG, we get it right because we follow our priorities in this order:

We care for ourselves and others

We care for the environment and communities in which we live and operate

We care for our business and long-term performance

Our Technology

MEG plans to grow its production using steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) technology with thermal-electric cogeneration providing a portion of the required steam.

MEG is also deploying eMSAGP technology to maximize production out of existing assets.

These proven technologies have demonstrated economic and environmental advantages. While the benefits of using proven technology are the foundation of our approach, we also actively investigate technologies such as our proprietary enhanced bitumen recovery processes eMSAGP and eMVAPEX that potentially provide further improvements to resource recovery while reducing our costs and environmental footprint.
