Large flames were spotted in the southwest part of Regina, and will likely be seen throughout the week.
TransGas is conducting occasional controlled burns at its Regina storage cavern near the Lewvan overpass. Natural gas will be released.
It’s part of the company’s regular pipeline maintenance. The flares are also needed as part of operational upgrades.
Drivers and those living near the area could see 6-metre flares at times.
Areas around the flares will be supervised to ensure public safety,
