CALGARY, Aug. 7, 2015 /CNW/ - Keyera Corp. (TSX:KEY) ("Keyera") had a brief operational upset during maintenance activities on the morning of Wednesday, August 5th, at its Simonette gas plant, located 60 kilometres southwest of Valleyview, Alberta. There was no risk to the public or to the environment as a result of this upset. However, gas which did not meet sales gas specifications entered the Alliance Pipeline system.
We have offered our assistance to Alliance Pipeline and are working with our producer customers to divert gas and find alternative solutions for their production until regular operations resume on Alliance.
