Saint John refinery

Every day, our Saint John refinery produces over 320,000 barrels of finished energy products, over half of which is exported to the US Northeast. We refine a wide range of products for our wholesale and retail markets, including gasoline, diesel, heating oil, jet fuel, propane and asphalt.

Our refinery opened in 1960, on a 780-acre site and has been upgraded throughout the years. We have also led in the development of cleaner and more efficient fuels and processes.

Irving Oil is the first and only Canadian refinery to have been recognized by Hart World Fuels as "Refiner of the Year," and we were the first oil company ever to receive the United States Environmental Protection Agency Clean Air Excellence Award.

With a workforce of over 1,400 people and thousands of neighbours in the community where we operate, we are committed to safe and environmentally responsible operations day and night.
