CALGARY - Husky Energy has pushed back the date to achieve full production at its Sunrise oilsands project to early 2017 from late this year because of the wildfires last month in Fort McMurray, Alta.
The Calgary-based company says the project was restarted in the past week after it was forced to shut down on May 7.
Husky wouldn't say how much Sunrise is currently producing, though it was more than 30,000 barrels per day before the fires.
Sunrise was commissioned last year and is expected to reach a capacity of about 60,000 barrels per day.
Experts estimate more than one million barrels per day of crude was taken offline as wildfires raged through the heart of Alberta's oilsands region.
Some of the 80,000 residents of Fort McMurray, which was evacuated, are being allowed back into the city.
