Suncor says that oilsands production volumes increased to an average of 411,700 bbls/d in the third quarter of 2014 driven primarily by the completion of the Firebag ramp up and smaller planned coker maintenance in the current year quarter compared to the prior year quarter, partially offset by a weather-related site-wide power outage and unplanned upgrader maintenance.
