The first full scale prototype of a subsea variable speed drive has been successfully tested in a sheltered harbor in Vaasa, Finland, taking the vision of an all-electric subsea processing facility one step closer to reality. A variable speed drive is needed to boost the productivity of oil and gas processes and improve energy efficiency, while providing the highest reliability.
Cenovus Energy Inc. plans to invest between $1.5 billion and $1.7 billion in 2018, with the majority of the budget allocated to sustain base production at the company's oil sands operations. The remaining capital will primarily support continued construction at the phase G oil sands expansion at Christina Lake, where costs are coming in below original expectations, and a targeted drilling program in the Deep Basin. This budget reflects Cenovus's focus on capital discipline, cost reduction and deleveraging.Highlights: (2018 budget vs. Nov. 1, 2017 guidance)
- Per-barrel oil sands operating costs - down 8%
- Per-barrel Deep Basin operating costs - down 11%
- Per-barrel oil sands sustaining capital costs - down 12%
- Christina Lake phase G go-forward capital efficiencies - a 21% improvement (vs. previous estimate)
- Total oil sands production - up 26%
