MEG Energy is a pure play Canadian oil sands producer engaged in exploration in northern Alberta. All of its oil reserves are more than 1,000 feet below the surface and so they depend on steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) and associated technology to produce.

The company’s main thermal project is Christina Lake. Cogeneration plants powered by 85 megawatts are used to produce the steam for SAGD, which is required to bring bitumen to the surface. The excess heat and electricity produced at its plants is then sold to Alberta’s power grid.

Its proven reserves have been independently pegged at 1.7 billion barrels and probable reserves 3.7 billion barrels; that’s significant considering only 300 billion barrels of the 1.6 trillion barrels of bitumen in Alberta is considered recoverable under current technology.
