Canada is a net exporter of refined petroleum products and crude oil, with the majority of its refining capacity flowing from Western Canadian refineries. In an unforgiving climate, refineries struggle with aging infrastructure, mounting maintenance costs, unplanned process shut downs and consequential energy inefficiencies. Remaining viable in an evolving and competing energy market requires refineries to achieve production and operation efficiency with reliable and predictable maintenance, conservative energy practices, preventative safety measures and regulatory compliance.
