Oil producer Cenovus Energy cuts 2015 capital spending

(Reuters) - Cenovus Energy Inc (CVE.TO), Canada’s No. 2 independent oil producer, cut its capital spending budget for 2015 in response to the slump in crude oil prices.

    The company said it could defer capital spending of up to C$700 million ($562.5 million) until oil prices recover.

    Cenovus announced in December a capital budget of C$2.5 billion-C$2.7 billion for this year, about 15 percent lower than for 2014.
