Irving Oil: Refinery incident update
October 09, 2018
As a further update to the incident that occurred at our Saint John refinery yesterday, we can confirm that the refinery as a whole is safe and the specific site of the incident is isolated and contained. Through our continuous air monitoring, we have determined that there are no concerns with regards to air quality. Accordingly, we are currently planning to have our turnaround team back on site this evening for the night shift. Our plans for returning to full turnaround mode will be discussed at that time.
We regret that this incident has happened and are sorry for the impact that it has had on so many in our community.
