Wabasca Heavy

What is Wabasca Heavy?

Wabasca Heavy is a blend of heavy oil production obtained by polymer injection and water flooding from the Athabasca region and typically has a 19-20 API gravity and 4.15 wt% sulphur content. Principal producers of the Wabasca Stream include Cenovus Energy and Canadian Natural Resources, though other producers do connect to the Wabasca Heavy stream. Wabasca Heavy is delivered to Edmonton via the Pembina Pipeline and Rainbow Pipelines.
