UNITED STATES TRIMS OIL BUYING IN
CALGARY, ALDERTA.-The Saskatchewan government
has ordered oil companies to reduce
their production in the province because the
United States Is cutting back on Its purchases
of Saskatchewan crude, the Saskatchewan
mineral resources department says.
A spokesman for the department said in a
telephone interview that the government has
sent letters to oil companies ordering a 16 per
cent cutback in production ln southeast Saskatchewan
(9,300 barrels per day) and a 40
per cent reduction In southwest Saskatchewan
(26,200 barrels) for December.
Saskatchewan crude production normally
averages 200,000 barrels daily.
The demand for crude exports to the northern
United States wlll fall short of the provInce's
production capacity next month, and
because the province does not have adequate
storage facUlties, the government has decided
to reduce production, he said.
The spokesman said U.S. buyers have created
the situation by deciding to reduce
crude Imports from Saskatchewan. He did not
say why U.S. buyers wanted to reduce their
Imports of Saskatchewan crude.
