Residents near Nova Chemicals’ Corunna site on Petrolia Line can expect to see increased noise and flaring as work begins on a scheduled maintenance turnaround.

The shutdown involved four years of planning and could last until early July, the company said. The work includes scheduled maintenance, inspections, cleaning and repairs, along with tie-ins to the Corunna Cracker Expansion project.

Increased traffic can also be expected between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m., and 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. over the next several weeks.

The project is a key part of the start-up of the new Nova polyethylene facility on Rokeby Line later this year, the company added.
