Suncor Energy Begins Scheduled Maintenance at Commerce City Refinery


WEBWIRE – Friday, October 12, 2012

Denver, Colorado ó Suncor Energy reported today it will begin planned maintenance at its Commerce City refinery this coming weekend. The work is part of Suncorís ongoing, regularly planned maintenance program designed to support safe, reliable operations.

Approximately 1,200 employees and contractors will be involved in the work, which includes maintenance on one of the refineryís crude units and its associated processing units, as well as tie-in work for several capital projects. The work is expected to take place over a period of approximately four weeks.

Suncor will focus on completing the maintenance work in a safe manner while minimizing any impacts on our neighbours, our customers and the environment. Although this maintenance work may result in an increase in flaring, noise and traffic related to Suncorís operations, necessary precautions have been taken to ensure these disruptions are kept to a minimum.

During this period, Suncor has made the necessary arrangements to ensure sufficient finished products are available and expects all customer supply agreements will be met.
