Brion Energy’s Oilsands assets are integrated into the Grand Rapids Pipeline System which moves our diluted bitumen to Edmonton for market and also supplies condensate to our oilsands projects. Groundbirch and Duvernay are equity gas supply sources for our interest in LNG Canada, which upon a Final Investment Decision could potentially export liquefied natural gas to markets overseas.
