August 1 was an important day for PetroChina Canada – we reached mechanical completion (MC) at MacKay River (MRCP). Since work on MRCP began in 2010, PetroChina Canada has remained consistently focused on the development of MRCP. MC is a crucial milestone in asset development, as MC marks the final phase of construction and indicates the plant can be handed over for commissioning and startup.
The next significant milestone for MRCP is not far away. MC is just one step along the path to successfully getting our products to market. In mid-August, we expect the transfer of care, custody and control (TCCC) of the completed facilities and will focus our efforts on commissioning and startup.
