  • Canada’s main oil-producing province of Alberta will lift curbs on crude production ahead of schedule at the start of December, as coronavirus-related shutdowns ease pipeline congestion, Energy Minister Sonya Savage said on Friday.
  • The move comes a month ahead of when the restrictions were set to end and at a time when the provincial economy is reeling under the impact of the pandemic.
  • Premier Jason Kenney’s United Conservative Party government has since then steadily eased curtailments as inventories drained.
