Canada's oil sands producers will have to fight for space on pipelines at least until 2014 amid surging U.S. oil output that’s reducing prices for Canadian crude, analysts say. Some producers such as Imperial (IMO), Cenovus (CVE) and Suncor (SU) are able to partially offset price differences by boosting refinery output, but those without refining capability, such as CNQ and BTE, are more at risk.
