FCL investing more than $140 million in annual Co-op Refinery Complex Turnaround

April 2, 2024

Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) is investing more than $140 million in the Co-op Refinery Complex’s (CRC) 2024 Turnaround. Over approximately 47 days, areas of the Refinery will be taken down for repairs, maintenance, and upgrades as part of the annual mega-project. The investment is an integral part of ensuring that the Refinery continues to operate safely and reliably.

“Turnaround is one of the most important economic events in the Regina community each year,” said Heather Ryan, FCL CEO. “In 2024, we are investing significant financial resources in our facility, while also creating about 2,200 additional temporary jobs. The project is an investment in our future as we work together – as a team – to ensure the Refinery continues to safely and reliably Fuel Western Canada.”

At its peak, the Turnaround workforce will see about 3,200 people on site each day. With the increased activity on site, CRC recognizes that it must be extra diligent about safety and ensure that it continues to be a good and responsible neighbour. To help with traffic, CRC’s security provider will manage the area around Fleet Street and McDonald Street. This is the area where most vehicles will access the facility for this year’s project. These efforts will minimize potential traffic delays for the public.

“This is an important time for us every year. It is an opportunity for heightened awareness as we safely execute our plans,” said Jen Stiglitz, General Manager, Refinery Operations. “It is our responsibility to keep our facility and our community safe. We’re committed to working with our people, partners and local community as we complete this critical project.”

The Refinery wants to remind all stakeholders that if they have questions or concerns regarding Turnaround, they can reach out to crc.publicaffairs@fcl.crs. The CRC also wants to ensure the public is aware that peak traffic hours will occur between 5 and 7:30 a.m. and 4 and 7:30 p.m., as workers come and go during shift change.
