Suncor Base Mine Extension Project

Suncor Energy Inc. is proposing to develop the Base Mine Extension Project to sustain the supply of bitumen to the existing upgraders at Suncor's Oil Sands Base Plant operation (Base Plant). The project includes an open-pit mining operation and associated infrastructure to supply bitumen to new froth production facilities and various other production facilities at the existing Base Plant. The project is located adjacent to existing Base Plant operations approximately three kilometres north of Fort McMurray, Alberta, within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Project construction is expected to start in 2026 and its footprint is anticipated to be approximately 30 000 hectares.
