Refining & Marketing
Suncor operates facilities in the Refining & Marketing (R&M) business unit in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Colorado. Data from Suncor's operations are consolidated for reporting purposes.
Historical information from 2008 includes combined data from Suncor R&M U.S. and Canadian operations, which had previously been reported separately. 2009 Data includes consolidated Petro-Canada and Suncor R&M assets for the 2009 reporting year. Beginning in 2009, data from the St. Clair ethanol plant was no longer included under the R&M business unit and is now reported separately. This data has been removed from historic R&M operations.
R&M also includes emissions data from Suncor's terminals and pipelines, which account for a small percentage of the total R&M numbers and are deemed to be negligible.
All significant data changes from 2008 are due to the 2009 merger of Petro-Canada and Suncor Energy whereby all data reported is from the combined company facilities for the full 2009 reporting year. The 2012 reporting year marks the third full year where a year over year comparison can be made with all facilities.
