Shell Canada Products is proposing to construct a new oil refinery to process heavy crude oil from Alberta in the Township of St. Clair. 

As a private sector undertaking, the proposed project was not subject to the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act. However, on March 7, 2007, Shell entered into a voluntary agreement with the Ministry of the Environment to make the proposed project subject to the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act. Shell will prepare an individual environmental assessment for review and approval by the Minister.
