The Peterborough Examiner - - Business -

CAL­GARY — Sun­cor En­ergy Inc. is call­ing on reg­u­la­tors to close down an open sea­son launched by En­bridge Inc. to gauge sup­port for a fun­da­men­tal change in how it as­signs space on the pipe­line sys­tem re­spon­si­ble for 70 per cent of Canada’s oil trans­porta­tion. Cal­gary-based Sun­cor, Canada’s largest oil and gas pro­ducer by mar­ket cap­i­tal­iza­tion, joins oil­sands pro­duc­ers Shell Canada and MEG En­ergy Corp., along with the Ex­plor­ers and Pro­duc­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Canada, in op­pos­ing the plan for En­bridge’s Cana­dian Main­line sys­tem. En­bridge an­nounced the open sea­son on Aug. 2, say­ing it will ac­cept bids un­til Oct. 2 from ship­pers who wish to en­ter into con­tracts of up to 20 years for pri­or­ity trans­port on the Main­line, with dis­counts avail­able based on con­tract length and vol­umes.
