Sturgeon Refinery

Turnaround 2022

Timing: Began August 8 and lasts approximately 2 months

Purpose: Periodically, refineries need preventive maintenance, inspections, renovations and upgrades. These planned activities ensure safe operations and help meet government regulations. Often, these activities require the refinery to shutdown all or part of production. Planned shutdowns are known as turnarounds.
