CANADA – Suncor Energy (NYSE:) has initiated the production increase at its Terra Nova Floating Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO) facility, following the completion of its Asset Life Extension project. The facility, situated offshore from Newfoundland and Labrador, is expected to see heightened production levels after a period of maintenance and commissioning that delayed initial plans following the FPSO’s return to service earlier this year.

The Terra Nova oil field is a joint venture primarily owned by Suncor Energy with a 48% stake. Other key stakeholders include Cenovus with a 34% share and Murphy Oil (NYSE:), which owns 18%. The field’s ramp-up was announced today and marks a significant milestone for Suncor Energy, which manages a diversified portfolio of operations including oil sands extraction, offshore drilling, petroleum refining, and the Petro-Canada™ retail operations, which features the Electric Highway™ network of EV charging stations.

Rich Kruger, CEO of Suncor Energy, commended the Asset Life Extension project for its expected shareholder benefits and the economic impact it will have on Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as the Canadian economy at large. Suncor’s commitment to sustainable energy and transparent reporting is reflected in its inclusion in several sustainability indexes, including the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index, FTSE4Good Index, and CDP.

This development is significant for the energy sector in eastern Canada, as the Terra Nova field is a crucial asset in the region’s oil production landscape. With the production ramp-up now underway, the project is set to contribute to the energy supply chain and economic growth.

Suncor Energy’s shares are publicly traded, with listings on both the Toronto and New York stock exchanges, allowing investors to partake in the company’s growth as it navigates the dynamic energy market and transitions toward renewable energy sources.
