Chevron Canada Limited’s Burnaby Refinery has been a part of its community since the petroleum company set up operations in Canada in 1935.
Located on the scenic shores of spectacular Burrard Inlet near Vancouver, the refinery produces petroleum products from Canadian oil and gas. Raw product arrives at the refinery from northern British Columbia and Alberta via the 1,200-kilometre Kinder Morgan Pipe Line. Here, using the most modern refinery technology, crude and synthetic oils, condensate and butanes are transformed into 50,000 to 55,000 barrels of motor gasolines, diesel and jet fuels, asphalts, heating fuels, heavy fuel oils, butanes and propane every day.
It’s a far cry from the early days of the 1930s, when the refinery’s daily output was 2,000 barrels a day. Back then, the Burnaby Refinery was one of only a handful of industries and pioneers in a densely forested area. Today, the community has grown up around us and we have become a neighbour to over 17,000 people in the Burnaby Heights area, in a city of about 200,000 people.
As the Lower Mainland expanded, our operations also grew. We remain committed to producing the finest petroleum products possible, while maintaining the highest environmental and safety standards. We are also aware of our responsibilities within our community and strive to be a good neighbour and a respected corporate citizen.
The products we make help move people and goods throughout British Columbia; we fuel commercial jets, long-haul trucks, forestry and mining operations, ferries, tugboats and of course, buses and automobiles. The Burnaby Refinery is part of a global energy company. Chevron Canada is a wholly owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation, one of the world’s largest integrated petroleum companies. The corporation is involved in every aspect of the industry, from exploration and production, to transportation, refining and retail marketing.
