Q&A: Ask an Analyst

What does the low oil price mean for Canadian operators and Canadian oilsands?

With $20 WTI and $10 WCS, no oil sands project is able to generate a profit, but it’s hard to predict a number for possible shut in volumes. As WCS and WTI continue on this downward spiral, producers are weighing the cost to continue to produce an uneconomic barrel less to the long term cost of shutting in SAGD or mining operations. Companies with mixed assets, legacy conventional oil and oil sands, are shutting in conventional oil wells immediately. SAGD wells are relatively easier to scale back production rates, as long as the steam chamber is maintained and the rate of production from mining is more dependent on facility’s ability to be turned down. Each oil sands production method has it’s long term consequences if production were to be shut in completely, some more permanent than others. With gas prices at $1.70/Mcf HH, even the gas producers are pretty vulnerable, but this isn’t unfamiliar territory for Canadian producers as they have seen much worse with AECO. The very thin silver lining to this all is given where activity has been over the past couple of years, we are anticipating another year of declining gas production out of Western Canada and therefore a bump in gas prices which bodes well for some Canadian gas producers.
