A tumultuous 2019 for Canada’s oil sands ended with a relatively quiet Q4. Price collapse at the outset of the year, followed by government mandated production curtailment eased at the end of 2019. Prices remained relatively stable in Q4 overall, with minor declines in Western Canada pricing. Crude-by-rail exports reached 2019 highs in December as operators take advantage of the reduced curtailment and Special Production Allowance announced by the Alberta government.
