CALGARY, Sept. 18, 2020 /CNW/ - Keyera Corp. (TSX: KEY) ("Keyera") today announced plans to perform preventative maintenance at its Alberta EnviroFuels facility ("AEF") later this fall.
AEF has operated well and maintained a high utilization rate in 2020. In response to a recent performance issue that resulted in the facility running at reduced capacity, Keyera has proactively decided to take the facility offline for approximately six weeks later this fall. This maintenance activity is intended to facilitate AEF's continued reliable operations at full capacity until its next scheduled turnaround in the fall of 2022.
AEF is located in Edmonton, Alberta and produces iso-octane, a premium gasoline blending component. The six week outage is not expected to have a material financial impact as demand for iso-octane is typically lower in the fourth quarter. Keyera maintains its 2020 guidance for the Marketing segment, which remains between $300 million and $340 million in realized margin.
