What is Long Lake Heavy crude?

Long Lake Heavy is a heavy sour synbit composed of SAGD produced bitumen and synthetic crude. As such, PSH has a high TAN though the MCRT is low for a 20 API gravity Canadian heavy crude. PSH is produced only at Nexen/Opti Long Lake, and is transported to Hardisty for distribution on mainline pipelines.
