At a news conference on July 12, 2016, Fang Zhi, CEO, shared the results of Nexen’s internal investigations into the Long Lake pipeline rupture of July 2015, and the Long Lake explosion on January 15, 2016. Also announced was the decision to transition our Long Lake business to a SAGD-only operation for the interim, and to move the Long Lake Upgrader into winter preservation (cold stack) mode. At this time, a planned date to return the Upgrader back into full service has not been established.
