- The Shell-operated Scotford Complex consists of an upgrader, oil refinery, two chemicals plants and a carbon capture and storage (CCS) facility. It is one of North America’s most efficient, modern and integrated hydrocarbon processing sites, converting oil sands derived bitumen into finished products via upgrading, refining, and chemical products.
- The upgrader was expanded in 2011 and the Quest CCS facility was added in 2015.
Shell Scotford employs about 1,100 people. This includes roughly 650 employees who work full time at the upgrader and about 450 who work at the refinery. Additionally, contractors provide support for both routine operations and major maintenance activities. The number of contractors on site at any given time varies according to the type of work underway.
