​Cenovus plans $1.2 billion to $1.4 billion in capital investment for 2019

CALGARY — Cenovus Energy Inc. is planning total capital spending of between $1.2 billion and $1.4 billion for next year.

The plan compares with its guidance for this year of between $1.3 billion and $1.4 billion.

Cenovus says the reduction compared with its 2018 forecast is largely due to efficiency improvements and reduced development plans as a result of the current commodity price environment.

The company says the majority of its budget for 2019 will be spent at its Foster Creek and Christina Lake oil sands operations.

Cenovus also plans to complete construction of the Christina Lake phase G expansion.

In addition to its oilsands operations in northern Alberta and established natural gas and oil production in Alberta and B.C., Cenovus also holds a stake in two U.S. refineries.
