Sulphur in Gasoline Regulations

Version of section 10 from 2015-07-16 to 2021-03-23:

  •  (1) Subject to subsections (2) to (6), a primary supplier shall, for each pool in respect of which they make an election under section 9, calculate the pool average of all gasoline in the pool that was identified as low-sulphur gasoline under section 5.

  • (2) In calculating a pool average, a primary supplier shall exclude all batches of low-sulphur gasoline that were exported by the primary supplier or an affiliate of the primary supplier.

  • (3) If a primary supplier imports and delivers a batch of low-sulphur gasoline to a refinery or a blending facility, the primary supplier may include that batch in the pool average for the refinery or blending facility if the batch is excluded from the pool average for gasoline that is imported.

  • (4) If a primary supplier dispatches from a refinery and delivers, or imports and delivers, gasoline-like blendstock to a blending facility where it is blended to produce a batch of low-sulphur gasoline, the primary supplier may include the volume of that gasoline-like blendstock and its concentration of sulphur in the pool average for the refinery or for gasoline that is imported, if

    • (a) the primary supplier owns the gasoline-like blendstock;

    • (b) the gasoline-like blendstock is, prior to being blended, segregated from all other batches of gasoline stored at the blending facility; and

    • (c) the batch of low-sulphur gasoline is excluded from the pool average for that blending facility.

  • (5) If a primary supplier dispatches from a refinery and delivers, or imports and delivers, gasoline-like blendstock to a blending facility where it is blended with low-sulphur gasoline to produce a batch of low-sulphur gasoline, the primary supplier shall include the volume of that gasoline-like blendstock and its concentration of sulphur in the pool average for the refinery or for gasoline that is imported.

  • (6) If a primary supplier dispatches from a refinery and delivers, or imports and delivers, a batch of low-sulphur gasoline to a facility where sulphur-limited oxygenate or sulphur-limited butane is added to the batch, the primary supplier may, if they own the batch, adjust the recorded concentration of sulphur of the batch to reflect the addition of the oxygenate or butane and may use the adjusted recorded concentration of the batch, instead of its measured concentration, to calculate the pool average for the refinery or for gasoline that is imported.

  • (7) For the purpose of subsection (6), if the sulphur-limited oxygenate that is added to the batch is denatured fuel ethanol, the primary supplier may, in adjusting the recorded concentration of the batch, assume that the sulphur concentration of the oxygenate is 5 mg/kg.
