The Nanticoke Refinery is an oil refinery in Nanticoke, Ontario, Canada. It is operated by Imperial Oil, a subsidiary of ExxonMobil. The refuels primarily go to Esso gas stations in Canada and to other oil companies' distribution networks in Canada and the United States.



Nanticoke refinery was originally built by Texaco Canada. It started production on November 17, 1978. In 1987, the refinery went through modifications to improve efficiency. Imperial Oil became an owner of the refinery when purchased Texaco's Canadian assets in 1989.

In 2004, a new gasoline hydrofining unit was built to treat gasoline ingredients from the Nanticoke and Sarnia refineries, followed by the second unit in 2006. A new desulphurization unit was commissioned in 2006.

In February 2007, a combination of a fire at the Nanticoke refinery and a strike at CN resulted in a shortage of gasoline at Esso stations in Ontario, which also drove up prices to more than a dollar a liter.[1]
