Natural Gas Flaring Near Biggar This Week

SaskEnergy will be conducting controlled natural gas flaring at the TransGas block valve site, which is located north of the Town of Biggar, near the Biggar Regional Park and west of Highway No. 4. Flaring will take place between 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on both Tuesday May 28th and Wednesday May 29th. Subject to change based on operating requirements.

Residents and drivers in the area may see a 40-foot flame being emitted from the flare stack temporarily attached to SaskEnergy’s infrastructure.

The flaring is necessary to perform maintenance work on the natural gas line system in the area and supports the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to SaskEnergy’s customers. During this process, a portion of the gas line will be isolated from the system and natural gas will be removed from the line in a controlled burn called a flare. Flaring is an industry standard practice when natural gas needs to be removed from a line and reduces the carbon footprint of the vented natural gas by 85 per cent.

The area around the flares will be supervised to ensure public safety. Residential natural gas service in the area will not be affected. SaskEnergy has notified the Town of Biggar and the RM of Biggar No. 347 and the local fire department about this upcoming event.
