Sulphur supply is increasing in Alberta and there is a need for additional sulphur handling facilities to serve this growing market. As refining capacity increases, producers will be required to move more sulphur to maintain refinery operations. In addition, there are approximately 10 million tonnes of sulphur on blocks in the Oilsands that will require future reclamation. Heartland Sulphur Terminal will provide the forming and liquid loading facilities required for Alberta producers to move the increasing sulphur supply to various world markets.
Overseas, sulphur is generally marketed on a dry bulk basis. In order to move product to the port and participate in overseas markets, Canadian sulphur producers must have access to sulphur forming facilities. The US sulphur market, which imports a significant amount of Canadian sulphur, operates on a liquid sulphur basis because of the logistics infrastructure available. So Canadian sulphur producers must have access to a liquid rail car loading facilities to access the US sulphur market. The Heartland Sulphur Terminal is designed to consistently and efficiently move Alberta’s sulphur to these various world markets. Historically, Canada is one of the largest exporters of sulphur in the world. This facility will bring a proximate terminal capable of handling Alberta’s northerly migrating sulphur production.
