Newfoundland & Labrador


North Atlantic Refining Ltd. (NARL Refining LP)

At North Atlantic, approximately 500 employees in refining and marketing transform crude oil into some of the cleanest fuels on the world market and distribute them to customers in Newfoundland & Labrador and around the world. Roughly 90 per cent of the product refined at the 115-barrel-per-day facility is exported, mainly to the eastern seaboard of the United States and Europe.

Millions of dollars in continued investments and improvements to the oil refinery have enabled North Atlantic to work through a challenging time in the refining industry. The company attributes its successes to key strengths, such as its strategic location on main shipping routes for oil delivery and petrol sales, and to the know-how of its many highly skilled and safety-conscience employees. Clean fuel hydrocracker technology enables the facility to produce low-sulphur, clean fuels from high-sulphur medium grade crude and low-sulphur light crude, giving the refinery the flexibility to refine crude oil sourced globally, including from the Middle East, the North Sea and Texas.

North Atlantic was acquired by SilverRange Financial Partners of New York in November 2014.

Facilities include:
- Crude storage: 3.6 million barrels
- Intermediate and finished product storage: 3.6 million barrels
- Butane storage: 300,000 barrel facility
- One of the largest refinery docks in North America (vessels up to 326,000 DWT)
- Two state-of-the-art tugboats

Irving Oil Refinery

Irving Oil operates Canada’s largest refinery in Saint John, New Brunswick. It is located 105 kilometres north of the United States border and has reached production rates in excess of 300,000 barrels per day. The refinery exports more than half its production to the Northeast United States. With a workforce of approximately 1,400, the refinery supplies petroleum products such as high octane and low sulphur gasolines, jet fuel, low sulphur diesel fuels, home heating oil, propane, kerosene and asphalt.

The refinery opened in 1960 and has been upgraded throughout its history, including a $1.5-billion upgrade in 2000. The Saint John refinery was the first in Canada to produce high-octane gasoline without the use of lead additives and the first to offer low-sulphur gasoline, five years ahead of Canadian regulation. In 2003, Irving Oil became the first oil company to receive a United States Environmental Protection Agency Clean Air Excellence Award, for its clean gasoline.
