Refining by the numbers

With no shortage of data in the refining and transportation energy sector, we have plenty of numbers to back-up what we say and do. For the data analysts and economists, it’s a numerical playground. For story-tellers, it’s a never-ending source of curiosity, filled with “ah-ha!” moments that make for good content and sharing. So, we decided to bring these two worlds together.

Over the next couple of months, we’ll be sharing bite-size data on social media, pairing each number with an equally ‘easy to digest’ fact.

We’re planning on covering a lot of ground, touching on information about the refining sector and its vital importance to Canada and Canadians. We’ll also chirp about the refining process and its products, the quality of life and end-use applications that keep us moving and warm. In addition, we’ll share facts about the environmental progress happening in the sector, and impact and implications of policy on energy security in Canada.

So, join us! If you’re not already doing so, follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn. Learn something new every day and share the posts with your family, friends and colleagues.
