Smaller Canadian producers fear higher tolls, or being squeezed out entirely with their barrels stranded in Alberta and sold at deeper discounts. With the capacity to ship 3.2 million b/d across 8,600 miles, Mainline is by far Canada's largest crude transporter and exporter, moving supplies from the Alberta oil sands to the Ontario and US Midwest refining markets -- and farther to the Cushing, Oklahoma storage and pricing hub, and to the US Gulf Coast through additional pipelines. The current Mainline tolling system relies on a monthly nomination system that utilizes apportionment when demand exceeds capacity, which has been the case for years with a shortage of Canadian pipelines into the US. Under 50% apportionment, for instance, a producer wanting to move 1,000 barrels would only be allowed to ship 500 barrels. Enbridge instead wants to shift to the more modern system of longer-term, take-or-pay contracts with minimum volume commitments -- for up to 20 years -- similar to most North American pipelines. The change is preferred by US refiners and some larger producers. Enbridge also wants more certainty before it embarks on further pipeline capacity expansion projects within Mainline and on pipelines further downstream to the USGC. The last 10-year tolling agreement expired in June and Enbridge is eager to implement the changes in 2022. The Canada Energy Regulator can either outright approve or reject Enbridge's requests, or settle on some sort of compromise that sets aside more than 10% of the capacity for spot shipments and lower the base toll, said Parker Fawcett, North America supply analyst with Platts Analytics. The regulatory decision will follow the Oct. 1 startup of Enbridge's Line 3 replacement project, increasing capacity on a key Mainline crude artery from 390,000 b/d to 760,000 b/d, and essentially ending the pipeline bottleneck into the US now that Canadian production has largely recovered from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/market-insights/latest-news/oil/112421-canada-ruling-on-enbridge-mainline-contracting-coming-nov-26
