Ottawa - Canadian pipelines received 31.4 million cubic metres of crude oil and other liquefied petroleum products in April 2014, up 6.2% from April 2013, Statistics Canada reports. The main source of this increase was in net receipts from processing plants, which rose 13.8% to 16.1 million cubic metres.

The increase in total receipts was slightly offset by smaller receipts from fields, refineries and imports. Imports declined 17.8% from the same month a year earlier to 1.0 million cubic metres in April.

Canadian pipelines delivered 31.2 million cubic metres in April, up 6.2% from April 2013. Increased deliveries by pipeline were attributable to higher upstream extraction activities in Canada as well as larger capacity of pipeline operations since 2010.

Total direct exports by pipeline to the United States increased 7.6% from April 2013 to 11.6 million cubic metres in April. However, deliveries to refineries were down 5.7% to 5.0 million cubic metres.
