On the morning of August 27, 2012 while shutting down the entire refinery for the expected landfall of Hurricane Isaac the Flare Gas Recovery System was taken offline due to limited Refinery fuel gas needs and the Units that process recovered flare liquids were shutdown.
The Flare Gas Recovery System (FGRS) was shutdown because the refinery units that use the recovered gas as fuel and the units that process the recovered flare liquids were shutdown.
Minimized flaring emissions by practicing good combustion practicies and making sure the highest flaring contributors were already taken offline prior to shutting down the FGRS. An investigation will commence following Alliance Refinery's recovery from the Impact of Hurricane Isaac.
