Cenovus extends search for Telephone Lake partner

CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Cenovus Energy Inc (CVE.TO) said on Wednesday it is still searching for a joint-venture partner for its planned Telephone Lake oil sands project in northern Alberta.

    Brian Ferguson, the company’s chief executive, said on a conference call that current market conditions, in which oil sands crudes are selling at a significant discount to North American benchmark prices, has made the search for a partner more difficult.

    He added that the company is not in a rush to complete a transaction.
