Alberta eases production limits on oil companies that use rail transportation

Alberta says the easing of production limits on oil companies prepared to ship more of their product by rail will help the province deal with a lack of pipelines.

In January, the former NDP government put a daily cap of 3.56-million barrels that the oil industry could produce to reduce a glut that was driving down prices. However,  starting in December, companies will be allowed to produce up to 3.81-million barrels of oil a day, although they will need to apply on a monthly basis and verify their rail shipments.
