Attachment: Planned Oil & Gas Production Project Starts in Alberta in 2019

SUGAR LAND--December 4, 2018--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--On Sunday, Alberta premier Rachel Notley announced that oil production in the province would be curtailed starting January 1. Western Canadian Select (WCS) crude oil currently trades for a steep discount to the North American benchmark, West Texas Intermediate (WTI), and it is hoped that reducing production from the oil-rich province will elevate WCS' price. The province suffers from a lack of takeaway pipeline capacity, helping cause the lower price. Industrial Info is tracking more than $94 billion in active Production projects in Alberta, many of which may be postponed due the planned production reduction.
