Q. What is Southern Pacific's environmental footprint?

Southern Pacific is committed to sustainable development. Underground water sources and high recycle (95%) have been designed for the STP-McKay project, including a zero liquid discharge water system with no effluent to surroundings or tailings ponds. Cogeneration (or COGEN), the use of a heat engine or a power station to simultaneously generate both electricity and useful heat and is one of the most common forms of energy recycling and will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As a CAPP member, Southern Pacific will participate in stringent stewardship reporting guidelines. The company does not mine for oil sands; in-situ projects have similar footprints to conventional oil projects.

Q. What is the company's corporate growth plan?

Southern Pacific is positioned for growth from both heavy oil at STP-Senlac in Saskatchewan and bitumen at STP-McKay in Alberta.

  • STP has received regulatory approval to proceed with up to 12 infill well pairs at STP-McKay.
  • On January 20, 2015 STP filed for Creditor Protection Under the CCAA.
  • All growth plans are on holding pending the outcome of the CCAA process.
