Suncor Energy receives approval for tailings and Millennium Operational Amendment applications

Suncor has announced it has received approval from the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) for its Suncor Base Plant Tailings Directive application and related Millennium Operational Amendment application.

Over the past few months, Suncor technical experts have met with Aboriginal communities, stakeholders and the regulator to clarify and provide additional information about Suncor’s tailings management plan. The approved plan will facilitate the treatment of current fluid tailings, reduce the tailings inventory and decrease the overall number of tailings ponds on site.

With the approval, Suncor will now work to implement its tailings management plan, working diligently to address the conditions outlined in the approval and continuing to engage with Aboriginal communities and stakeholders.
