Oil sands project costs have dropped but pipeline constraints, other factors likely to slow growth

The cost of building and operating oil sands projects has fallen dramatically in recent years and total oil production is expected to rise by another 1 million barrels per day (mbd) by 2030. But external factors—such as price uncertainty caused by pipeline constraints—are contributing to a more moderate pace of production growth than in years past, a new report by business information provider IHS Markit.

U.S. imports of Canadian heavy crude more than double 2012 levels

Imports of Canadian heavy crude are an increasingly important source of supply to the United States, the world's largest refining market for such crudes, according to a new report by IHS Markit. U.S. imports of Canadian heavy crudes will approach 2.8 million barrels per day (mbd) in 2018—more than double what they were in 2012—and could exceed 3 million mbd in 2020.

Shale revolution keeps US trade deficit in check

The boom in U.S. oil and gas production over the past decade has exerted a moderating force on what is a large domestic merchandise trade deficit by helping reduce the country's net petroleum imports, a new report by business information provider IHS Markit says. Continued U.S. production growth is now on track to make the country a net-exporter of petroleum for the first time since at least 1949.

Oil sands report anticipates large production growth through 2019, modest gains through 2027

Canada's oil sands will experience large production growth through 2019 followed by more modest, steady growth through 2027, according to a new 10-year production forecast by business information provider IHS Markit. The forecast calls for production to rise more than half a million barrels per day in 2019 and up to 1 mbd higher by 2027 compared to today.

Permian Basin production expected to rise by 3 million bpd by 2023, report shows

Oil production in the Permian Basin, already a major force in global supply growth, will rise nearly 3 mbd by 2023 — a level of growth exceeding most recent estimates, a new outlook by business information provider IHS Markit says. What the report describes as a "stunning" level of growth will comprise more than 60 percent of net global production growth during that timeframe.

Canada may supply a third of U.S. Gulf Coast heavy oil by 2020: IHS Markit

Supplies of Canadian oil sands heavy crude are increasingly being refined on the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) and could top 1.2 million barrels per day (mbd) — a full one-third of the region's heavy oil refining market — by 2020, says a new report by business information provider IHS Markit. Current runs of Canadian crude in the USGC market are estimated to already be in excess of 800,000 barrels per day (bpd), the report says.
