Nexen’s K1A Recovery Program achieved a significant milestone on Thursday April 14, 2016, when workers successfully completed bitumen removal activities within the release area.

As part of the recovery efforts, the release area was visually inspected and removal activities were supported by confirmatory sampling both at surface and within the trench excavations. The site will now transition into a long-term monitoring program to support the site remediation. This monitoring program will be submitted to the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) for authorization prior to implementation, and will be included in our site Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act approval requirements.

We remain focused on safely mitigating impacts to the environment and continuing to consult with the AER.
