Explanatory Note for Crude Oil Prices

  • All prices are settlement prices, for delivery in the prompt month.
  • Prices are based on daily closing prices posted on NYMEX in US dollars per barrel.
  • Prices are converted to Canadian dollars per cubic metre using the Bank of Canada’s daily noon exchange rate and applying a volumetric ratio (6.29:1) to convert the price per barrel to a price per cubic metre.
  • NYMEX: The New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), the world's largest physical commodity futures exchange.

West Texas Intermediate Oil: West Texas Intermediate (WTI) is the main benchmark price for light sweet crude in North America and specifies delivery at Cushing, Oklahoma.

Brent: Brent is the main benchmark price for light sweet crude in international markets and specifies delivery at Sullom Voe terminal, United Kingdom.

Western Canadian Select: Western Canada Select (WCS) is the main benchmark price for Canadian heavy crude and specifies delivery at Hardisty, Alberta.

Mixed Sweet Blend: Mixed Sweet Blend (MSW) is the main Canadian benchmark price for mixed light sweet crude, blended at Edmonton, Alberta.

Synthetic Crude Oil (SCO): Synthetic crude oil is a light crude oil that is produced by upgrading bitumen. The contract for synthetic crude oil specifies delivery at Edmonton, Alberta.

Implied Bitumen Price: The implied bitumen price is derived from the price of Western Canadian Select (WCS), which is assumed to have a blend composition of 30% condensate and 70% bitumen. The value of the condensate is subtracted from the WCS price to arrive at the implied price of bitumen. The implied bitumen price represents the value of bitumen extracted from the oil sands before condensate is added to allow the oil to flow through pipelines.
