Since 1880 Imperial has consistently demonstrated unwavering high standards, pioneering Canadian spirit, innovation and leadership in the challenging energy industry. While much has changed for more than 140 years, remaining true to these fundamentals has kept us at the forefront of the race to meet the world’s growing demands for energy. Our goal is to do business in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner while delivering superior long-term value. At Imperial, we believe that we can have reliable and affordable energy, a strong economy and a clean environment, and we're committed to making it happen.
As an integrated energy company, we explore for, produce, refine and market products essential to society. Whether it's finding oil and gas, making and selling high-quality petroleum products, or investing in innovative research, our business helps ensure Canada's quality of life and energy future.
We start by hiring the best and brightest and insist on maintaining the highest standards in ethical conduct and legal compliance to bring integrity to all aspects of our business. The safety of our workforce is a company-wide priority and is a value that guides us to strive to achieve a very simple objective – Nobody Gets Hurt.
The world needs it, Canada should provide it. Demand for responsibly-produced energy is growing and this is where we’re strong - abundant resources, evolving technology and innovation, and solid leadership in safety and environmental performance.
We’re going places, thanks to rail. While pipeline capacity is constrained, we need railways to get to the markets that will pay more for our products and keep us competitive with energy companies around the world.
Over 700 different petroleum products keep North Americans moving. Pipelines help them flow in and out of our refineries in a safe, environmentally friendly way – from the well to the customer.
We produce and provide quality petrochemical products and services with a commitment to the principles of sustainability. Quality fuels, convenience stores and friendly and helpful service to meet all your driving needs are available through the Esso and Mobil retail network.

We produce asphalt for paving and roofing at both our Strathcona and Nanticoke refineries, fed partially by our Cold Lake in situ oil sands operation. In fact, one in every three kilometres of Canadian highway is paved using our asphalt. You probably haven’t given it much thought but a lot of research goes into ensuring asphalt roads are safe for the people who travel them – from new and improved binding agents to lifetime projections of performance under different environmental and use factors. We work closely with the Asphalt Institute, which conducts important research on road safety.

Situated on-site with our refinery in Sarnia is our chemical plant, where we make many products including polyethylene, naphtha intermediates, vinyl intermediates and aromatics – the basis for 1,000’s of products Canadians use every day. Industries from construction, oil and gas and agriculture to millions of consumer products and packaging rely on our petrochemical products, but here are a few of our favourites:
