Several Canadian oil companies pushed back on Monday against Alberta's mandated cuts in crude production, warning about excessive government intervention even though some drillers had already cut production after Canadian oil prices recently plunged to record lows.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said on Sunday the government will force producers to cut output by 8.7%, or 325,000 barrels per day, until excess crude in storage is reduced.

While all companies said they would comply with the mandatory cuts, executives from Canada's Suncor Energy, Husky Energy and Imperial Oil disagreed with the move in statements on Monday.
