News: Shell rationing gasoline, diesel in Western Canada

Full Reuters article here.

Royal Dutch Shell refinery in Alberta is running at reduced rates, forcing the company to ration fuel to its own Western Canadian retail network and to commercial customers, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday. There is no indication yet when the 98,000 barrel a day Scotford refinery near Edmonton will be back at full rates, Shell spokeswoman Jana Masters said.
Masters declined to say how much fuel the plant is producing or whether mechanical problems were causing the fuel shortages, which are affecting Saskatchewan, Alberta and northern British Columbia.
A bit thin on the details. The company spokesperson doesn't have any further details, Whoda' thought?

Well, If this is what we're in for this summer it could be one damn bumpy ride.
