CALGARY, Nov. 1, 2018 /CNW/ - Keyera Corp. (TSX:KEY) ("Keyera") today provided an operational update for its Alberta EnviroFuels facility ("AEF"), which produces iso-octane, a premium gasoline blending component. The facility has operated very well in 2018 and continues to maintain high utilization rates. To help ensure continued reliability and high utilization of the facility, AEF was taken off-line on November 1, 2018 for preventative maintenance. The shut down is not expected to have a material financial impact as demand for iso-octane is typically lower in the fourth quarter. Assuming the work is completed on schedule, the facility is expected to be fully operational in mid-November.
Keyera Corp. (TSX:KEY) operates an integrated Canadian-based midstream business with extensive interconnected assets and depth of expertise in delivering midstream energy solutions. Its predominantly fee-for-service based business consists of natural gas gathering and processing; natural gas liquids processing, transportation, storage and marketing; iso-octane production and sales; and an industry-leading condensate system in the Edmonton/Fort Saskatchewan area of Alberta.
