Note to readers
The Monthly Refined Petroleum Products survey collects data on the activities of all Canadian refineries involved in the production of refined petroleum products (North American Industry Classification System [NAICS] 324000) and of selected major distributors of these products (NAICS 412000).
Domestic sales include all sales by reporting companies, excluding exports and sales to other reporting companies. Refinery production is measured at a net-yield level, for example, after exchanges between refinery processes.
Refinery receipts of crude oil and equivalent hydrocarbons (condensates and pentanes plus) are for refinery consumption or storage from domestic and foreign sources.
