REUTERS: Shell says oil sands are not behind refinery woes

CALGARY, Alberta, Feb 12 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile, Research) oil sands and upgrading operations are not the cause of refinery problems in Alberta that have led to fuel shortages in Western Canada, a Shell spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

“From an oil sands perspective, it’s business as usual at the mine and the upgrader,” Janet Annesley said.

Undisclosed problems at Shell’s 98,000 barrel a day Scotford refinery near Edmonton, Alberta, have led to a cut in production and forced the company to ration supplies of gasoline and diesel fuel in Saskatchewan, Alberta and northern British Columbia.
