Power Disruption Impacting Operations At Syncrude

A power outage is affecting operations at Syncrude’s site north of Fort McMurray.

Spokesperson Will Gibson tells Fort McMurray News the disruption is forcing them to increase their flaring.

“It’s burning off refinery gas and there may be odours associated with that.”

He notes the Alberta Energy Regulator and neighbouring communities, including Fort McKay, have already been notified.

There’s no current timeline on when the site will be 100 per cent operational.

“We’re working on getting operations returned to normal as quickly and safely as possible.”

Gibson says no one was injured and there are no safety concerns at the site.
