Western Canadian Select crude oil

A deepening oil market slump is adding fresh pain for producers of the world’s cheapest crude as the Canadian heavy grade reached a record low, raising the prospect of more production going offline.

Spot prices for Western Canadian Select fell to $19.81 a barrel on Wednesday, the lowest since tracking began in 2008, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The benchmark, made up of heavy conventional production and bitumen blended with synthetic crude and condensate, fell with global grades after U.S. gasoline inventories surged the most in 22 years and crude supplies at the American storage hub in Oklahoma climbed to a record.
