Canadian oil surge fails to lift producers out of the doldrums Canadian oil surge fails to lift producers out of the doldrums
Published: 21 Jan 19
Alberta’s crude curtailment plan has caused a dramatic rise in the price of heavy Canadian oil. But for shares of energy companies, it hasn’t been as much of a help. Since the production curtailment was unveiled early last month, Western Canadian Select crude has almost doubled to about $43 a barrel, narrowing its discount to benchmark US oil to an almost decade-low of $6.95 a barrel on January 11. Yet in that same time, the S&P/TSX Energy Index is up less than 4%.

Cokal wading through the shallows for BBM
Published: 21 Jan 19
Coal developer Cokal has singed a non-binding heads of agreement with Vietnam’s An PhatLoc General Trading Co to jointly develop shallow draft barging on the Barito River to transport coal from the PT Bumi Barito Minerals (BBM) project area, in Indonesia. Barges built by An PhatLoc, carrying some 1 700 t of coal can be designed to operate in 3m depth water. If the load is reduced to 1 000 t, they will be able to operate in 1.95 m depth water. This would enable successful barging operations to be undertaken from Cokal’s BBM mining operation over significantly longer periods than conventional draft barges, which are currently used in Indonesia, the company said.
