Thanks Dr Viechtbauer,

I asked our statistician (Steve Méthot) to run the suggested model in SAS for me and he had to make 1 modification to get P-value and CIs for x1 (not reported in the output otherwise).

model y = intcpt x1 / solution cl noint ddf=10000;

was changed for :

model y = intcpt x1 / solution cl noint ddf=10000,10000;

We got the exact same results except for fit statistics which differ a little bit but I guess this depends on the way each program calculates them.
