Canada's Cenovus Energy Inc <CVE.TO> on Thursday said it would support any further moves by the oil-rich province of Alberta to curtail production as the industry scrambles to head off a storage crunch. The endorsement comes as Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said the western Canadian province is open to joining any potential global pact to reduce a glut of crude production. Storage levels in Alberta, home to the world's third-largest crude reserves, have ballooned to around 30 million barrels and are fast approaching capacity of about 40 million as producers park crude to cope with plummeting demand, according to Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) analysts.
The fall in crude prices have forced producers to look for ways to reduce cost, and Cenovus said its measures included a 25% cut in compensation for chief executive officer and board members.
