TORONTO, Ont. — A power outage at Imperial Oils Nanticoke refinery resulted in a shutdown today, but its too soon to tell whether it will affect fuel prices, the company says.
The Nanticoke refinery accounts for about 25% of Imperial Oils refining capacity. It was there that a fire struck in February, causing a major fuel shortage in Central Canada.
Todays shutdown affected the entire refinery, which has since been restarted according to the Canadian Press. However, restarting the refinery can take three to five days.
“It’s too early to know whether will be any impact on supply,” company spokesman Pius Rolheiser told the Canadian Press.
