For those in the Alameda and Arcola area in southeast Saskatchewan, you might see some massive flames starting Sunday.
The Alliance pipeline is starting to flare off natural gas after the company shut down its main pipeline on Aug. 7. The shutdown was prompted after hydrogen sulfide, H2S, was detected in the mainline. The company says this is the result of complications attributed to an operator.
While flaring the gas, people in the area are asked to keep away from the stacks. It will be hard to miss where you shouldn’t be as the stacks will be bright, loud, and potentially producing smoke.
If people in the area have any questions or concerns call Alliance at 1-888-533-8937.
