Suncor is one of Canada’s largest integrated energy companies with a strong history in this country dating back to 1917. Today, in western Canada, across the east coast of Canada and internationally, Suncor explores, develops and produces conventional oil and natural gas.
The Suncor Energy – Burrard Products Terminal is a private company categorized under storage and distribution of petroleum products.
The Suncor Energy Burrard Products Terminal receives and stores finished transportation fuel products as well as conducts light product finishing operations to make fuels ready for the marketplace. Although it is one facility, there are three distinct areas within the facility referred to as the upper, middle and lower plants. The terminal stores and distributes a number of finished fuel products including: conventional gasoline, oxygenated gasoline, ultra-low sulfur diesel, biodiesel, and jet fuel. The facility is ISO 9001:2008 certified.
The facility was originally built in Burnaby as a fuel products terminal in 1920. In 1957, the facility was expanded into a fully integrated refinery. The expansion included installation of refinery operating units in the Port Moody municipality. The facility was converted back to a product distribution terminal in 1993.
The terminal currently operates as one integrated facility, but has areas of operation referred to as upper, middle and lower plants. The majority of petroleum products arrive at the facility via pipeline from Edmonton and are intended for domestic use. A considerable amount of finished products are also received by marine imports to meet Western demand for transportation fuels. Product is then distributed into Western markets via truck, rail and barge.
In 2010, the Burrard Product Terminal received an Eco-freight grant for helping to reduce Green House Gas emissions through the innovative use of a low-sulphur light railcar mover to transport product in and out of the facility.
