Imperial counting on April arrival of stalled equipment
CALGARY — Imperial Oil says getting its $10.9-billion Kearl oilsands mining project started by the end of 2012 as scheduled depends on delivery in the next three months of 85 modules delayed in the United States.
On a webcast from a conference in Whistler, B.C., Imperial president and chief executive Bruce March said Thursday he’s optimistic the project will start on time.
“The Kearl initial development is now about 87 per cent complete and we continue to be on track for a start-up in late 2012,” he said.
