The Parkland fuel refinery in Metro Vancouver reopened on the 10th of March after being shut down for seven weeks due to an unexpected issue. The restart process involves turning on the main air blower for the heat system, which might result in increased flaring, as well as potential odors, noise, and smoke. Parkland plans to begin processing crude oil into the refinery once it is operational. The company has assured it will work closely with the community and regulatory bodies, and independent air monitoring will be conducted throughout the restart. This follows an incident on January 21 that caused significant odor complaints from residents, although air quality standards for contaminants were reportedly not breached.
