Edmonton Terminal Has 1.7 Million Barrels of Storage
When constructed in 1961, the Edmonton terminal had a modest storage capability of 5,000 barrels, but it encouraged heavy oil producers to examine the possibility of developing markets through the facility. Today, the Gibson Energy Edmonton Terminal, which recently expanded to 1.7 million barrels of existing storage, is strategically located adjacent to “Pipeline Alley.”
So, what happens at the terminal? Well, the Gibson Energy Edmonton Terminal handles crude oil and condensates as well as diesel fuel and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). Both CN and CP rail systems service the terminal, and the terminal connects to multiple inlet pipelines and major export pipelines.
In Alberta, Gibson Energy employs 545 full-time employees and has donated nearly two million dollars in community investment funds over the last five years. Gibson Energy continues to be an essential partner and contributor to both the Edmonton and the Alberta economy.
