(Larry MacDougal / The Canadian Press) New data from ATB and the Alberta Energy Regulator says that oilsands production in the province is still at record levels. The statistics, which were posted on ATB’s website on Wednesday , say oil production in Alberta averaged nearly 3.8 million barrels per day in July, just 1.7 per cent short of the record set in November 2021. The report also said that production was higher during the first seven months of 2022 over the same period in 2021. "This was mainly a result of strong year-to-date gains in raw bitumen (+1.7 per cent) and conventional (+12.5 per cent) output, which offset a 0.4 per cent dip in upgraded production during the same timeframe," ATB wrote. ATB said oil exports drove the majority of the increase.
