Meanwhile our producers receive a small fraction of the world price because our only market for the vast majority of what we produce are the US refiners.

Is that because US refiners don't need all that you produce so each company lowers their price to be the one that gets to sell their oil cheap? Supply > Demand?

How do pipelines help solve that? Pipe more of the supply to the ocean and ship it to non-US demand to reduce over-supply allowing price to rise?

Is this part of the reason why US petroleum companies did so well these past few years?

Might this have the happy consequence that smart Canadians innovate to reduce costs of extraction putting you ahead in the future?
