Sturgeon Refinery Reaches Milestone – Produces First Diesel

December 12, 2017 — Today the Sturgeon Refinery announced production of its first diesel, a huge milestone for the project!

Throughout its construction phase, the Sturgeon Refinery has helped strengthen the local economies of dozens of municipalities in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland and across the province through employment, spending and community investment.

At a ceremonial event today to mark the first diesel milestone, North West Refining Inc. recognized the long-standing support of the Industrial Heartland and the enormous accomplishment by its staff, owners, and its partners.

This project is the very definition of innovation and vision. With carbon capture technology and an operating model that maximizes alignment between industry and government, the Sturgeon Refinery exemplifies the best of Alberta energy.  Congratulations to Ian MacGregor and NWR on this huge milestone.
