APPENDIX 2 SUMMARY OF CONDITIONS Conditions generally are requirements in addition to or otherwise expanding upon existing regulations and guidelines. An applicant must comply with conditions or it is in breach of its approval and subject to enforcement action by the EUB. Enforcement of an approval includes enforcement of the conditions attached to that approval. Sanctions imposed for the breach of such conditions may include the suspension of the approval, resulting in the shut-in of a facility. The conditions imposed on the approval are summarized below. In the event that there is a discrepancy between this summary and the condition as set out in the main body of the decision report, the wording in the main body of the report shall prevail.
Suncor shall submit for EUB approval the detailed geotechnical designs for the External Overburden Disposal structure and the In-pit Overburden Disposal structure along the Steepbank River at least six months prior to field preparation in these areas.
Suncor shall submit for EUB approval a finalized plan for mining at the lease boundary between the NSME and Lease 29 five years prior to mining at this lease boundary. The plan should address the lack of drilling information on Lease 29 and contain a comprehensive evaluation of the lease boundary geology and reserves, geotechnical conditions, alternative mining scenarios and impacts, and associated costs, in accordance with Section 3.1 of ID 2001-07.
Suncor shall meet a lower requirement for its annual diluent losses. The lower diluent loss limit of 4.0 volumes of diluent per thousand volumes of bitumen will take effect November 1, 2008.
Suncor shall not mine oil sands from the North Steepbank Mine Extension that meet the requirements under ID 2001-07 until - it meets a CT efficiency of 76 per cent on a quarterly basis not later than the first quarter of 2009, - Pond 8 tailings storage is available for the deposition of CT, and - commercial CT production commences from the Millennium Extraction Plant.
Suncor shall provide to the Board detailed information on the ability of the CT stored in its tailings ponds to provide a trafficable surface for reclamation. This information should include annual pond surveys, sampling data, vane shear testing, and other information as specified by the Board.
Suncor shall provide detailed plans on the incorporation of supplementary tailings techniques to reduce Suncor’s MFT inventory in its annual tailings plan beginning in 2007.
Suncor shall provide an annual update of its efforts to coordinate mine planning and closure with other operators in terms of landform design, drainage, and material balances as part of its annual mine plan reporting.
