Suncor wraps maintenance at Montreal refinery

Suncor Energy Inc. has concluded 3 months of planned maintenance at its 137,000-b/d Montreal, Que., refinery.

Designed to support safe, reliable operation of the refinery, the maintenance work began on Sept. 22 and was scheduled to last about 11 weeks, the company said (OGJ Online, Sept. 23, 2014).

The scheduled maintenance at Montreal involved ongoing work to modify the plant’s hydrocracking unit, which will improve overall production yields and energy efficiency at the refinery, according to Suncor’s third-quarter 2014 and 2013 annual reports to shareholders.

The project, due to be completed by 2015, is designed to enable the refinery to receive and process heavier crude feedstock, the company said.
