A strategic link in serving Alberta’s oil & gas and oil sands sectors
North American Terminal Operations

Our Operations

Recognizing its strategic location, we transformed the site of our former sodium chlorate plant at Bruderheim, Alberta into both a storage and transloading facility and the first pipeline-connected, unit train operation of its kind in Alberta to efficiently service the vast oil & gas and oil sands sectors.

Our Bruderheim terminal is a strategic link in moving our own caustic soda and hydrochloric acid, as well as third-party hydrocarbons, in and out of Alberta by rail. With access to both CN and CP rail, NATO is ideally located to serve our three target markets:

  • The oil sands – terminaling bitumen & diluent;
  • Conventional oil and gas – terminaling conventional heavy oil and our own hydrochloric acid for horizontal drilling and fracturing; and
  • Local refineries – terminaling renewable fuels.

Our ongoing expansions at the Bruderheim terminal create high-value, step-change growth for Canexus and much needed transport options for Western Canadian oil producers.
