The proposed project

Kitimat Clean Ltd. is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning and abandonment of a new oil refinery located approximately 13 kilometres north of Kitimat, British Columbia. As proposed, the Kitimat Clean Refinery Project would include a refinery, a power-plant, a rail yard, a marine terminal and a bitumen storage facility. A new pipeline would also be constructed to deliver fuel to the proposed marine terminal, located approximately 12 kilometres south of Kitimat. The project is expected to process approximately 400,000 barrels of bitumen per day over a lifespan of at least 50 years.
