On Monday, March 9, Suncor began planned maintenance in Plant 2 of its Commerce City refinery. This work includes taking some operating units out of service, performing the maintenance, and bringing the units back online. The work is scheduled to last approximately two weeks. Suncor expects periods of increased flaring as it shuts down the units over the next couple of days. Similarly, Suncor expects periods of increased flaring toward the end of the maintenance period as the units come back online.
Suncor's focus is on completing the maintenance in a safe manner while minimizing any impacts on the neighboring community and the environment. These activities are part of the refinery’s ongoing, proactive efforts to ensure safe and reliable operations. If Suncor sees that activities are not going as planned, it will stop or delay the work to reassess.
Suncor will notify stakeholders and the community once this work is complete. If you have questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
