Notes
This table represents exports of Canadian crude oil by transportation system as the crude oil export crosses the Canadian border.
Use of other transportation routes/systems may occur before and/or after the transportation system used for export.
Crude oil includes Canadian crude oil and/or equivalent. It does not include exports of Canadian refined petroleum products.

These export figures are representative of the Board's best estimates derived from monthly export reports. To the best of our knowledge and belief, all information contained herein is accurate and reliable.
Be aware that revisions to monthly export reports are processed on an ongoing basis. Therefore, export volumes are subject to change.

For reasons of confidentiality, the export figures above are only available at an aggregate level.
