CALGARY, Alberta, May 25 (Reuters) - The Syncrude Canada oil sands project in northern Alberta is further cutting shipments of synthetic crude to customers in May and June because of a leak at the plant, two market sources said on Thursday.
Syncrude will reduce May shipments by 100,000 barrels and June shipments by 1 million barrels, the sources said. The cuts come on top of already reduced production forecasts for the facility in May and June as a result of maintenance work that was brought forward following a fire in March.
