Canadian pipeline net receipts of crude oil and condensates, and other liquefied petroleum products totalled 34.8 million cubic metres in November, up 4.9% from the same month in 2014.
Contributing to the gain were higher receipts from plants (+9.0% to 18.7 million cubic metres), refineries (+8.2% to 4.8 million cubic metres) and imports (+15.1% to 1.3 million cubic metres). Lower receipts from fields (-3.2% to 8.7 million cubic metres) and from other sources (-10.8% to 1.2 million cubic metres) partly offset the overall increase.

Note to readers
Data for October 2015 have been revised.
This report covers the monthly activities of all pipelines in Canada receiving and delivering crude oils, liquefied petroleum gases (propane, butane and ethane) and refined petroleum products.
