It was in 1858 that oil was first discovered in
Canada. It was in the village of Black Springs,
Ontario that James Williams set out to dig a
water well, but struck oil instead. This discovery
triggered North America’s first oil rush. With
the rapid growth of Industry and vehicle use,
the nation’s dependency on oil production has
steadily escalated over the years.
By the late 1980’s Canada was consuming one
billion litres of lubricating oil a year. Today in North
America, we consume over 21 million barrels of
oil every day.
