Shell Canada to shut Montreal refinery

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 14
– Shell Canada Products plans to halt operation of its 130,000-b/d Montreal East refinery and to convert the facility into a terminal for gasoline, diesel, and aviation fuel.

In a press statement Shell said the refinery “no longer fits with Shell’s long-term strategy.”

Shell opened the refinery in March 1933 as a 5,000-b/d topping plant.

According to Oil & Gas Journal’s latest Worldwide Refining report, the Montreal East refinery’s processing capacities include 14,610 b/cd of visbreaking, 27,900 b/d of fluid catalytic cracking, 20,910 b/d of semiregenerative catalytic reforming, 14,100 b/d of hydrocracking for distillate upgrading, 49,500 b/d of catalytic hydrotreating for cat reformer feeds, and 27,000 b/d of hydrotreating for kerosene/jet desulfurization.
