Shell may process oil sands crude at US refineries

Tue Jul 8, 2008 1:59pm EDT CALGARY, Alberta, July 8 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSa.L: Quote,ProfileResearchStock Buzz) may process tar-like crude from its Canadian oil sands holdings at some of its U.S. refineries, rather than at a proposed C$27-billion ($26-billion) plant in Alberta, the head of the oil major’s Canadian unit said on Tuesday.

Shell is still evaluating options and the timing for future phases of its Athabasca oil sands project, which now produces 155,000 barrels a day.

The company and its partners have proposed boosting oil sands output to 770,000 barrels a day over the next several years, and two years ago announced plans for an upgrading plant to be built in four 100,000-barrel-a-day stages.

“There’s a range of options being looked at. One potential outcome is that all that upgrading’s done in Alberta,” David Collyer, Shell’s country chair for Canada, told reporters. read more
