Syncrude seen back at normal output by weekend

CALGARY, Alberta, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Production at Syncrude Canada Ltd, the world's largest synthetic crude producer, is expected to be back at normal rates by this weekend after bitterly cold weather led to a shutdown last week, a spokeswoman for the joint venture's biggest owner said.

Production at the northern Alberta development resumed on Tuesday at 180,000 barrels a day, which is just over half the capacity, Canadian Oil Sands Trust COS_u.TO said.

"Realistically, it will probably be another couple of days, like into the weekend, before everything's up and running again," Canadian Oil Sands spokeswoman Siren Fisekci said. (Reporting by Jeffrey Jones; Editing by Renato Andrade)
