Imperial Oil closing Nova Scotia refinery

By OGJ editors

Imperial Oil will cease operations of its 88,000-b/d Dartmouth refinery near Halifax, NS, and use the facility as a terminal.

The company said efforts begun last year to find a buyer were unsuccessful (OGJ Online, May 17, 2012).

“The results of the marketing effort illustrate the challenges of operating a refinery of Dartmouth’s scale in the competitive conditions of the Atlantic Basin market,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Rich Kruger.

The refinery, which began operation in 1918, has 31,500 b/cd of fluid catalytic cracking capacity and 10,500 b/cd of semiregenerative catalytic reforming capacity.
