Throughout its construction phase, the Sturgeon Refinery has helped strengthen the local economies of dozens of municipalities in Alberta's Industrial Heartland and across the province through employment, spending and community investment.
Don Smith, Vice President of Petroleum for UFA was on-hand for the celebration.
"UFA is proud to help celebrate this milestone for the Sturgeon Refinery.
We only source our fuel from the very best vendors, including Sturgeon Refinery. Our customers rely on our fuel to deliver the power and fuel economy they expect, so we're committed to providing the best quality gasoline and diesel products available on the market today and in all weathers. Our stringent Quality Assurance Program ensures rigorous testing and controls so that the petroleum products UFA provides can handle even the toughest conditions.
Today we are especially proud to support an Alberta-made diesel being refined and supplied to local customers such as UFA."
North West Refining Inc. recognized the long-standing support of its neighbours by providing free diesel for a number of community service vehicles in the local area.
