Suncor Refinery Flare Work - Sept. 24

Beginning Monday, Sept. 24, Suncor will conduct work on one of the flare units at the Commerce City refinery. This planned work will allow Suncor to comply with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulatory requirements under the Refinery Sector Rule that goes into effect Jan. 30, 2019.

The work will allow Suncor to more accurately monitor and control flare emissions. The work is anticipated to last approximately 72 hours. In the unlikely event of a process upset during the work period, increased flaring with potentially larger flames and smoke could occur from the flare stack. Should such an event occur,  the increased flaring will be for a short duration of time and should not be a cause for concern. For more information, contact Lisha Burnett, 303.286.5836.
