PetroCanada still plans to build an upgrader (with coker) and Edmonton remains the chosen location. The high price of crude oil should help them weather the labor & construction cost issues.
 
Their position seems to vary a great deal from Husky Energy who now indicates it is looking in the US – an unlikely spot given all the difficulty encountered by US & other foreign Energy firms trying pull off the addition new grassroots refinery for last 2 decades, sounds more like a negotiating position rather than planning consideration.
