And the NEB has authorized the movement of the equivalent of barrels per day of western crude oil to the eastern market beyond mainly the Montreal refineries serving Eastern On- tario and Quebec. This includes barrels per day via the Great Lakes- St. Lawrence Seaway from Sarnia and the equivalent of barrels per day via the Panama canal from Van- couver. Total domestic production of crude oil during August has been estimated by the NEB to be barrels per with or more than destined for domestic consumption. According to the the dramatic increase in authoriz- ed exports during which breaks a recent pattern of decreasing is the result of higher-than-normal inventories of domestic crude oil. The NEB has decided to dip into the oil inventories and al- low the export of more than barrels a day of Oil gov9t pipeline views differ domestic in addition to the barrels a day of ex- ports from the estimated domestic production during for the total of some b.p.d. Last the export of some barrels a day was authorized by the NEB. The amount of domestic crude authorized to move into the Eastern Canada market during August is almost exact- ly the same as the amount authorized for barrels a day in August com- pared to for July. But the amount destined to move to the East Coast via the Panama canal from Van- couver has jumped 31 percent for bpd tor August compared to bpd for to the NEB. A year the NEB author- ized a total export to the U.S. of 1.1-million barrels per day compared to this August's figure of barrels per day.
