    Good questions, Alastair. I would say that your #1 and #3 are the most kleily scenarios. To some degree, the available oilsands product will displace existing refinery feedstock, and so production of refined products will go where they are going now (some exports, some domestic). Since oilsands would only have one other market (US Midwest) with temporarily depressed prices, there is the potential that Gulf Coast refiners get a lower-cost feedstock than they are getting right now, making additional runs economic, and so you see more production of refined products, therefore more exports of refined products. US isn’t exporting upgraded (Synthetic Crude) oil, they are exporting more refined products, primarily diesel.
