Shell Canada - Montreal East Refinery (161 000 bpd)

The Shell Canada - Montreal East Refinery is located inside the Montréal-Est city on Sherbrooke East Street. This refinery was founded in 1931, the second Montreal refinery after the Imperial Oil (Esso) Refinery. The refinery isn't located far from to petrochemical industries like Coastal Petrochemical, Shell Chemical, Parachem petrochemical, Interquisa Canada and Marsulex (Sulconam) Canada. This refinery have some essential petrochemical infrastructures to complete the oil refining.

On June 4, 2010, Shell Canada officially announced the commencement to downgrade the refinery into a terminal, following the unsuccessful attempt to find a buyer to take over the plant.[1]

Old Refineries

Texaco Montreal East Refinery

The Texaco Montreal East Refinery was located on the current grounds of Interquisa Canada on Gamble Avenue. It was near the Imperial Oil Ltd. refinery. It was founded in the 60s and operated for only twenty years. The closure of the Texaco refinery coincided with those of the refineries of Imperial Oil Ltd., Gulf Canada, and BP. These massive closures of refineries were made in the 80s during the oil crisis.

BP Montreal East/Anjou Refinery

The BP Montreal East/Anjou Refinery was situated on the current grounds of the Metropolitan golf club in the Anjou district of the city of Montreal. It was the only refinery to be built in the North of the metropolitan freeway. It produced gasoline for twenty years but the oil crisis in the Middle East forced its closure in the 80s.

Imperial Oil Ltd. Esso Montreal East Refinery

The Imperial Oil Ltd. Esso Montreal East Refinery was the first Montreal refinery. It was founded in 1913, three years after the foundation of the city of Montréal-Est. The facility refined oil for more than 70 years and it returned service to the east Montrealers. It was constantly evolving and during the last years of its operation, the company made massive investments to strengthen the refinery's position in the market. The closure of the refinery and its dismantling remains mysterious due to its profitability and its successful refining units. It is possible that a new Imperial Oil refinery will return to Montreal-East.

Petrochemical plants

Coastal Petrochemical

The petrochemical company of Coastal is quite new because it is the result of a restart thanks to the company Interquisa Canada. Indeed, this company carried the name of Kemtec Petrochemical. Today, this petrochemical complex make paraxylene, benzene and toluene, before, phenol and acetons. The Coastal Petrochemical company is a commercial partner with Parachem petrochemical, Selenis Canada and Interquisa Canada.

Kemtec Petrochemical

The Kemtec Petrochemical compagny was a company similar to that of Coastal Petrochemical. Its transformed and finished products are practically the same, except in the case of the phenol and the acetones where Coastal made dismantle the industrial units.
