Alberta Downstream Petroleum Sector Water Conservation, Efficiency, Productivity Plan (pdf)


The Alberta Government’s Water for Life strategy (2003) has set a target for Albertans to achieve a 30 per cent improvement in water-use efficiency and productivity. The Alberta Water Council (AWC) was established by the province to spearhead this goal. The downstream petroleum sector has completed a voluntary conservation, efficiency and productivity (CEP) plan which covers refining, marketing and distribution operations in Alberta. 

In 2015, a progress update was prepared which describes the current water use in the downstream petroleum sector and outlines some additional actions taken to date to reduce water diversion from various natural sources, as well as, to increase the efficiency of water used in refinery operations.
