REGINA, SK (October 13, 2016) – Alliance Pipeline today announced the successful and safe completion of two days of natural gas flaring activities west of Regina. The company would like to thank residents and travelers for their cooperation during this time.
Alliance shut down its pipeline system October 12 and undertook the flaring so it could replace two sections of pipe where the Regina Bypass ring road will cross its pipeline. The company expects to have the pipeline re-started October 19. Alliance’s construction work at the Regina Bypass locations will continue into November.
