Sturgeon Refinery


North West Redwater Partnership (NWR) is a joint venture comprising two Calgary based companies: NWU LP (Alberta), owned by North West Refining Inc. (Alberta) and CNR (Redwater) Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Natural Resources Limited.

NWR is starting up the first phase of a bitumen refinery to process 79,000 barrels per day (BPD) of bitumen + diluent blend (50,000 BPD of bitumen), and has invested billions of dollars to produce low carbon, high value end products needed by Albertans and global markets.

The facility is managed and operated by NWR, with bitumen feedstock provided by Canadian Natural Resources Limited as well as the Government of Alberta through its bitumen royalty-in-kind initiative.

NWR is committed to creating opportunity by adding value to the province’s resources and ensuring the best possible return on investment.
