Husky Energy completes first phase of its Clean Fuels project
PRINCE GEORGE, BC, Sept. 6 /CNW/ - Husky Energy recently reported that its Prince George oil refinery is now producing low-sulfur gasoline, following the successful completion of the first phase of the company's Clean Fuels project. Construction of this phase began in July 2004 and was completed last month. The project's second phase, due to be completed in the second quarter of 2006, will allow the Prince George facility to produce ultra-low-sulfur diesel and will also increase overall capacity from 10,000 to 12,000 barrels per day. "The low-sulfur gasoline produced at the refinery meets the Government of Canada's new fuel specifications and will also benefit the environment by reducing vehicle emissions in central and northern B.C," said Husky president and CEO John Lau.
