Company Updates

September 9, 2020
On September 8th, 140 years ago, 16 Canadians joined forces and formed the Imperial Oil Company. Since then, Imperial has been in the business of providing energy solutions to Canadians through dramatically changing times. When the company was formed in the late 1800s, we produced waxes and lamp oils, we transported fuel products by horse-drawn carriages, gasoline was dispensed through a garden hose and geologists searched for new discoveries in canoes. Today, we use virtual reality for safety training, drones for surveying, night vision cameras to monitor wildlife, and satellites to measure greenhouse gas emissions. We've developed technologies that significantly reduce emissions from our operations, invested in cogeneration to increase energy efficiency and reduce the GHG emissions intensity of our sites, and introduced advanced oil recovery technologies at our oil sands operations that reduce greenhouse gas intensity and water use. We've even created an app which lets our customers pay for fuel from their car.
