The Sturgeon Refinery is the first refinery built in Canada in over 35 years. The only refinery designed from the outset with a carbon capture solution, it uses leading technology to maximize performance and minimize environmental impacts. By capturing the carbon emissions produced during the refining process, the Sturgeon Refinery produces one of the lowest carbon intensity fuels from bitumen. The CO2 is gathered and transported by the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line system to Central Alberta for enhanced oil recovery and permanent safe storage.
The Sturgeon Refinery is now fully operational. Ultra low sulphur diesel and other value added products are produced from Alberta’s bitumen with a focus on optimizing the facility for safe, reliable, long term production. The refinery is designed for two additional identical phases, creating the opportunity to maximize production of lower carbon fuels while simultaneously supporting new employment and economic impact.
North West Redwater Partnership (NWR) is the owner and operator of the Sturgeon Refinery. NWR is a joint venture between North West Refining and Canadian Natural Resources Limited.
