At its 142,000-b/d Edmonton refinery, about 1,400 employees and contractors were involved in the scheduled maintenance, which wrapped on May 26, Suncor said.
The planned maintenance at Edmonton began on Apr. 7 and was scheduled to last about 8 weeks (OGJ Online, Apr. 8, 2014).
Scheduled maintenance activities at Suncor’s 137,000-b/d Montreal refinery concluded on May 20, with about 900 employees and contractors involved in the work, the company said.
Maintenance activities at the Montreal plant started on Apr. 21 and were planned to conclude after 4 weeks (OGJ Online, Apr. 22, 2014).
The company did not disclose specific details regarding the nature of work undertaken at either refinery, but both plants already have been scheduled for additional planned maintenance later this year.
The Edmonton refinery has a 4-week planned maintenance event slated to begin during the third quarter, while the Montreal refinery will enter 9 weeks of scheduled maintenance late in that same quarter, according to Suncor’s first-quarter 2014 report to shareholders.
