Reliable supply, diverse network

We rely on our strong network of partnerships with a group of diverse, reliable and quality crude oil suppliers from around the world. Most of our crude arrives by ship, which is unloaded at our Irving Canaport Marine Terminal in Saint John, NB.

Irving Canaport was the western hemisphere’s first deep-water crude terminal able to receive supertankers, with more than six million barrels of storage capacity.
