Flaring complete at propane plant
August 8, 2017
Flaring at Federated Co-operatives Limited’s bulk propane plant near Estevan, Sask., was completed at noon on Monday without incident.
The flaring began on the morning of Aug. 4, part of an emergency response plan to empty the tanks after a third-party carrier inadvertently offloaded anhydrous ammonia into storage on Aug. 3.
A small amount of the mixture remains in storage and will be flared later this week under the supervision of an emergency response crew.
Thank you to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment, RCMP, Estevan Fire Department and the Rural Municipality of Estevan for their assistance in the safe resolution of this incident.
