Imperial Oil to produce ultralow-sulfur diesel at four Canadian refineries

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Oct. 14 -- Imperial Oil Ltd., Toronto, will invest $500 million (Can.) during the next 2 years at its four refineries in Canada to produce ultralow-sulfur diesel fuel for on-road vehicles. New 2007 model diesel vehicles will have engines designed for ultralow-sulfur diesel.

Work to reduce sulfur levels by almost 95%—to 15 ppm by June 1, 2006—has begun at Imperial's Strathcona refinery in Alberta, its Sarnia and Nanticoke refineries in Ontario, and its Dartmouth refinery in Nova Scotia.

Imperial Oil already has reduced the sulfur content of its gasoline by more than 90%, to 30 ppm, it said.
