TransGas Success Compressor Site will see some flaring from Aug. 20-30

Posted on 18 August 2023 by Prairie Post

SaskEnergy will be conducting controlled natural gas flaring at the TransGas Success Compressor Site, approximately 6km southwest of the Village of Success, in the RM of Riverside. Flaring will take place between 7:00 to 7:30 a.m. on every day from Sunday, August 20 through to Wednesday, August 30, subject to change based on operating requirements.

Residents and drivers in the area may see a 40-foot flame being emitted from the flare stack temporarily attached to SaskEnergy’s infrastructure.

The flaring is necessary to perform maintenance work on the natural gas line system in the area and supports the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to SaskEnergy’s customers. During this process, a portion of the gas line will be isolated from the system and natural gas will be removed from the line in a controlled burn called a flare. Flaring is an industry standard practice when natural gas needs to be removed from a line and reduces the carbon footprint of the vented natural gas by 85 per cent.

The area around the flares will be supervised to ensure public safety. Residential natural gas service in the area will not be affected. SaskEnergy has notified the RM of Riverside and the local fire department about this upcoming event.
