Suncor operations cease at base plant after ‘process upset’ knocks out power


CALGARY — Suncor Energy Inc. says operations have ceased at its oilsands base plant near Fort McMurray, Alta., after a temporary power loss Wednesday afternoon. Company spokesperson Erin Rees would only describe the cause of the power loss as a "process upset" but says power was restored as of Wednesday night. Rees says she cannot provide more detail because it's a "day to day operational issue." She says the incident does not impact the safety of the company's employees or contractors. Suncor is currently focused on a safe return to operations, Rees says. She says during that return to operations, there is potential for additional flaring at the plant. The Canadian Press
