CNS-711, Sep 6, 2017

CNRL Light Sweet Synthetic had reduced density and elevated light ends for the September sample. Simulated distillation results showed larger than usual naphtha and distillate fractions while the gas oil cut was smaller. These results look similar to CNS before it changed quality about a year ago.
