     Syncrude Canada’s Fluid Coker – rates/maint
    Market sources attributed the increase in the Syncrude differential
    to talk of a possible turnaround of Syncrude Canadas Coker 8-1.
    Syncrudes largest shareholder, Canadian Oil Sands, said December
    6 that Coker 8-1 was running at reduced rates. The company
    added that if higher stable production levels are not achieved by early
    2012, a decision to take the unit down for turnaround is likely.
    In its 2012 budget, COS said the coker was running at 66% in
    early December.
    The coker continued at reduced rates, market sources said Tuesday,
    and some sources expected a decision soon, possibly later Tuesday,
    on whether a coker turnaround would be needed.
    COS did not have an update Tuesday on the status of Coker 8-1,
    spokeswoman Siren Fisekci said. We are in a quiet period right now
    because of earnings reports, Fisekci said.
    The three cokers at Syncrude Canadas facility near Fort McMurray,
    Alberta, have a combined light, sweet synthetic crude capacity of
    350,000 b/d. Coker 8-1 has a capacity of 100,000 b/d and Cokers 8-
    2 and 8-3 each have a capacity of 125,000 b/d.
