Updated Natural Gas Flaring Test
Due to delays, the SiteWise flaring that was to be conducted on Wednesday did not occur. Today mid-morning, SiteWise will produce two brief natural gas flares near a regulator station at East County Line Road and Maxwell Avenue in Erie. This work is the final step for commissioning a new 6-inch distribution line so that it may be put into service.
SiteWise expects the two flares to take between 20 and 30 minutes, and the flames to be between 10 and 20 feet high. SiteWise has communicated the flaring operation to local authorities.
