Canadian Oil Sands Trust is shipping less crude oil than normal on Enbridge Inc. ’s pipeline system because tanks along Enbridge’s system are full, Alison Trollope, a spokeswoman for the producer, said in a telephone interview.
Crude oil, heating oil and gasoline advanced on speculation that Japanese rebuilding efforts will bolster fuel consumption and as unrest spread in the Middle East and North Africa. It was the sixth straight day the three commodities moved in the same direction. Ethanol was little changed, gaining 0.1 cent.
Enbridge Inc. said some shippers injecting crude oil into its pipelines have experienced “temporary disruptions” while space is created in receiving tanks, according to Gina Jordan, a spokeswoman for the company. Enbridge expects to meet apportioned nominations by the month’s end.
