Alberta eases oil production curtailments for August - government statement

CALGARY, Alberta, June 27 (Reuters) - The government of Canada’s main crude-producing province Alberta eased crude oil production curtailments for August on Thursday, setting the limit at 3.74 million barrels per day, compared with 3.71 million bpd in July.

Alberta introduced mandatory curtailments effective Jan. 1 this year in a bid to ease pipeline congestion that had left crude stranded in storage tanks in the province and pushed the discount on Canadian oil to record levels. (Reporting by Nia Williams Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
