Cenovus applies for 190,000-bbl/d diluent recovery unit at rail terminal

Posted on Wednesday December 18, 2019 at 10:59AM

Cenovus Energy has filed for regulatory approval of plans to build a large diluent recovery unit (DRU) at its Bruderheim Rail Terminal, allowing it to ship more oil out of Alberta.

The Alberta Energy Regulator announced the application on Friday.

Documents describe a DRU that would separate up to 190,505 bbls/d of diluted bitumen, or dilbit, delivered by pipeline from the company’s oilsands projects into undiluted “neatbit” and diluent components.

Approximately 119,000 bbls/d of neatbit would be shipped by rail to markets, while approximately 71,000 bbls/d would be recycled back via pipeline to the company’s oilsands operations.
