  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Solv-Ex Corporation is applying to the Alberta Energy and Utility Board (AEUB) for a seven year approval to construct and operate an experimental oil sands co-production facility from November 1995 to October 2002. The facility will be used to evaluate the feasibility of a new co-production technology for the production of Pipelineable Crude Oil (PCO) from the Athabasca oil sands and minerals from fine clay also found in the McMurray Formation. Production levels will be 1674 cubic metres per stream day (m3/sd) of PCO, 64 000 metric tonnes per year (t/y) of alumina, 12 000 t/y of potassium sulphate and 14 000 t/y of ferrous sulphate. The site for the proposed mine and plant is Solv-Ex owned Lease 7276120T05 (Lease 5) located 85 km north of Fort McMurray and 20 km north of Fort McKay). This document consists of the EIA and the Supplemental response to government review questions.
