Canadian pipelines net receipts of crude oil and condensates and other liquefied petroleum products totaled 32 million cubic metres in September of this year, an increase of 3.1 per cent from the same month last year.
That was some of the information recently released by Statistics Canada in a report on crude oil transportation.
Most categories posted gains in September. Receipts from plants were up 8.8 per cent to 17.5 million cubic metres while receipts from refineries and bulk plants rose 12.8 per cent to 4.9 million cubic metres. Imports were up 10.9 per cent to 1.1 million cubic metres while receipts from other sources edged up slightly by just 0.3 per cent to 1.4 million cubic metres. Partly offsetting the overall increase were receipts from fields which fell 13.3 per cent to 7.2 million cubic metres.
Canadian pipelines net deliveries of crude oil and condensates and LPPs rose 5.2 per cent from the same month a year earlier to 32.9 million cubic metres in September.
Exports increased by 15.9 per cent to 13.9 million cubic metres and deliveries to other destinations rose by 14.6 per cent to 2.4 million cubic metres. These increases were partially offset by declines in deliveries to plants( down 3.1 per cent to 11.1 million cubic metres) and to refineries (down 4.6 per cent to 5.2 million cubic metres).
Crude oil and condensates and LPPs held in tanks and terminals decreased 9.5 per cent from August to 6.6 million cubic metres in September. Inventories remaining in pipelines edged up slightly to 0.2 per cent to 12.5 million cubic metres.
