Refining and Petrochem·icals in Nova Scotia

CIM Bulletin, 1973

D. C. DOWNING, Technical Coordinator - Synthetic Fuels, Gulf Oil Corporation, Pittsburgh, Pa

I THANK YOU for the invitation which The Mining Society of Nova Scotia extended, originally to Gordon Berry, manager 'of our Point Tupper Refinery, to join you at this meeting and discuss refining and petrochemicals in their relation to this region. There are natural advantages in Nova Scotia which have made possible, and will continue to make possible, sizeable developments both in petroleum refining and in chemicals. Equally, however, as is the case everywhere, there are certain constraints. For clarity in this presentation, I will state some of these constraints right at the beginning.
