Imperial reviews oilsands project approvals as heavy oil price discounts persist

first_imgCALGARY – Two new oilsands projects with the combined capacity to produce up to 200,000 barrels per day have been approved by the Alberta Energy Regulator but proponent Imperial Oil Ltd. isn’t saying when or if it will build them.Company experts are scouring the “guts and feathers” of the decisions on its 50,000-bpd Cold Lake expansion and 150,000-bpd Aspen projects, both of which would use solvent and steam to recover bitumen from wells, said CEO Rich Kruger on a conference call to discuss third-quarter results on Friday.The prospect of producing more heavy oil comes at a difficult time as discounts being paid for Western Canadian Select bitumen blend crude versus New York-traded West Texas Intermediate are hovering near US$40 per barrel, about three times typical differences.Light oil discounts have also widened recently as Canadian oil production exceeds export pipeline capacity — although lower-priced Alberta light oil actually weighs in Imperial’s favour because its Edmonton-area refinery consumes primarily light oil, Kruger pointed out.The Calgary-based company has grown its crude-by-rail exports from 80,000 barrels per day of diluted bitumen six months ago to about 100,000 bpd now and plans to increase that to as much as 130,000 bpd by year-end, he said.The rail-loading terminal Imperial co-owns near its Edmonton refinery has capacity to ship 210,000 bpd.“As we get into 2019, we’re going to continue to work to ramp it up … I’d like to use every bit of that capacity because that allows us to get into the highest value markets (on the U.S. Gulf Coast),” Kruger said.Imperial earned $749 million in the third quarter, more than double its profit of $371 million in the same period last year, thanks to strong upstream production and downstream profits.Analysts applauded the report that Imperial’s Kearl oilsands mining projects, which has previously been dogged by reliability problems, posted record gross production of 244,000 barrels per day, about 4,000 bpd higher than its nameplate capacity.The project is 30 per cent owned by Imperial’s U.S. parent company, Exxon Mobil Corp.Overall upstream production was 393,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, up slightly from the third quarter of 2017, resulting in earnings of $222 million, the highest level in four years.Imperial’s refining and sales division, meanwhile, pulled in earnings of $502 million compared with $292 million for the third quarter last year.Downstream profits were up despite a $33-million impairment charge related to the Ontario government’s revocation of its cap and trade carbon emission regulations.Partners in the Syncrude oilsands mining consortium are working to finalize commercial agreements for a plan to improve reliability by integrating certain operations with the nearby Suncor Energy Inc. base processing plant, Kruger said on the call.On Thursday, Suncor CEO Steve Williams said the partners have agreed in principle on the main terms and he expects two pipelines between the two plants will be completed by late 2020.Suncor owns about 49 per cent and Imperial owns 25 per cent of Syncrude.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX:IMO, TSX:SU)last_img read more

Henderson praises Klopps management style

first_imgLiverpool captain Jordan Henderson has praised manager, Jurgen Klopp’s management style.The England midfielder who helped his country reach the last four of this summer’s World Cup, explained the logic behind the German tactician’s style.“The lads have worked so hard in pre-season and I can see the benefits already in how fit they are, the rhythm they have got from playing games,” said Henderson, according to France24.“You can see that in the performances, they are winning games. So it’s normal for me that I’m not playing, I can accept it.”“Obviously, it’s a lot easier when you’ve had longer in pre-season and more games to play before the season starts then of course it is a lot easier to get in your rhythm straight away, your fitness levels will be higher.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“When you are coming back from a World Cup when you have had time off, you come back in and you have still got to get back up to speed straight away.”“I’ve used this period to try and refresh my body, refresh my mind because last season was long.”“Especially with the World Cup, it was enjoyable and ended with the disappointment but it was a long season and this is going to be another long season hopefully with a lot of games so I’m using this period to be as ready as possible.”Klopp’s rotational policy has also been aided by the club’s summer recruitments, bringing in players like Fabinho, Keita, Alisson.last_img read more

Travelers Rallied To Assist Roadside Accident On Black Ice Highway

first_imgOn Saturday night around 9:30 – 10 p.m.:The Homer girls basketball team, traveling Southbound on the Sterling Highway just North of the Russian River Ferry parking area, slid off the highway on black ice and came to rest with the rear of the bus in the Northbound ditch and the front of the bus in the Northbound lane. The duo returned to their semi-truck, which was five or six vehicles back from the stranded bus, disconnected their load from the truck cab, chained-up, and proceeded into position in-front-of the sideways school bus.  With a “we can move this” demeanor, the two men hooked-up the bus, winched and pulled the bus easily back onto the road. We’re Alaskans, we can do this! Patient travelers, including multiple, school sports teams returning from activities in the Valley and Anchorage; the efforts of a lone Alaska State Trooper and a pair of good Samaritan truck drivers turned a stressful Saturday night roadside accident into a memorable example of the Alaska spirit. The Homer players were transferred to the Soldotna High School boys basketball bus, which was just behind the accident; and drivers, coaches, an Alaska State Trooper, and other travelers donning reflective gear assisted in managing the accident scene. Crisis averted!center_img Two truck drivers hauling a Southbound load labeled “Caution Aviation Fuel” proposed the option of extricating the back wheels of the Mariners bus from the ditch by using their vehicle with chains and a winch.  After receiving a supportive “Lets Do It” from the surrounding motorists, the plan was put into affect. Travel both North and South resumed by 10:30 p.m. on the Sterling Highway.  No injuries, no vehicle damage, plenty of good Samaritan spirit. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Treacherous road conditions on the Sterling highway on Saturday night brought out the best of the Alaskan spirit; as travel both North and South was stalled due to a school bus sliding off of the icy roadway near the Russian River Ferry Terminal.
