Nexen Responds to AER Notification of Partial Lifting of Suspension Order

Calgary, Alberta (September 6, 2015) – On Sunday, September 06, 2015, Nexen Energy ULC received an Amendment Order from the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER), which lifts the application of the Suspension Order to a portion of the pipelines at our Long Lake facility. As a result, Nexen is able to maintain approximately 75% of our Long Lake oil sands production and upgrader operations.

Nexen will comply with the requirements of the Amendment Order and will continue to comply with a Suspension Order issued by the AER on Friday, August 28 to satisfactorily address the remaining pipelines in a safe and timely manner.

Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.
