Imperial Oil (IMO -0.9%) says the start-up of its 110K bbl/day Kearl oil sands mine is being hampered by bitter winter weather in northern Alberta, and production likely will be delayed until January. Kearl will be one of Canada’s largest open-pit mining operations, with regulatory approval for up to 345K bbl/day of production.
