Metro Vancouver’s Parkland Fuel Refinery resumed operations on March 10. The company was able to resume operations seven weeks after the shutdown.

Crews will begin the process by turning on the main air blower for the heat system at the Burnaby, British Columbia plant, according to a statement on Parkland’s website. This may cause high flame and odor, noise and smoke for some time.

Once the factory is up and running, Parkland will move into the next phase of operations. Then the crude oil will be paid.

The company said it is working closely with the community and regulatory agencies and will continue to do so.

The unplanned incident on January 21 affected parts of Metro Vancouver. And more than 100 complaints from local residents. Two days ago Parkland issued an advisory on their website. That said, residents living nearby may have noticed more noise and flare than usual from the factory.

Metro Vancouver is monitoring nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide emissions from the Parkland refinery. The district told citizens that air pollution did not exceed tolerable levels during the incident.
