TORONTO, Ont. — Stocking oil in the shop, preventing cross-contamination and spills (not to mention misfills), can be a challenge. Spills can create hazards and inefficiencies, and misfills can damage equipment if quickly not identified.

TORONTO, ON – Gibson Energy is selling all its Canadian trucking operation, and most of the fleet it operates in the U.S., as it focuses business assets on crude oil infrastructure.

Murray K Mullen has seen the impact of low oil prices first hand. More than 100,000 jobs, $60 billion in earnings, and $33 billion in capital investments have evaporated, much of it in Alberta.
