Suncor withdraws sour gas plan for Kananaskis

Suncor Energy has withdrawn a plan to drill 11 sour gas wells and build pipelines through a pristine wilderness area southwest of Calgary. Alberta’s Energy Resources Conservation Board gave Suncor (TSX:SU) permission in 2010 to build and operate the development in the southern Kananaskis area.

CALGARY — Suncor Energy has withdrawn a plan to drill 11 sour gas wells and build pipelines through a pristine wilderness area southwest of Calgary. Alberta’s Energy Resources Conservation Board gave Suncor (TSX:SU) permission in 2010 to build and operate the development in the southern Kananaskis area.

The project, including 37 kilometres of pipelines, was opposed by conservation groups, ranchers and the Stony First Nation, which filed legal action against Calgary-based Suncor.

Suncor blamed economics and logistics for its decision. “As a result of consistently low natural gas prices and the imminent closure of the Coleman natural gas plant, we have decided to withdraw our application for the Sullivan development,” Sneh Seetal, a company spokeswoman, said Tuesday.
