Canada - Tamarack
In November 2010, Ivanhoe Energy filed an application with Alberta Environment and the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) for regulatory approval to proceed with the Tamarack integrated oil sands project, which is comprised of a two-phased 40,000 bbl/d steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) thermal recovery and HTL facility. Both regulators have completed their initial review of Ivanhoe Energy's Application.
In 2012, the Company responded to two additional rounds of supplemental information requests. In January 2013, Ivanhoe received a Completeness Determination from Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (AESRD). This determination confirms that the AESRD has no further technical questions and has deemed the application complete. The Company is now working with the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and local stakeholders to resolve concerns raised by stakeholders in their Statements of Concern (SOCs). To date, five SOCs have been removed. The Company believes Tamarack is safe, technically sound, and economically viable; and continues to use all efforts to remove the remaining Statements of Concern and work with the AER to progress the application towards approval.
