TransGas will be conducting a controlled flare of natural gas near Regina on Tuesday.
The flare will be located on the TransGas system south of Wascana Greens Crescent in the Wascana View subdivision.
The flaring will begin at 5:00 a.m. and continue for approximately four hours.
The flare is necessary to help TransGas perform operational upgrades to the pipeline system.
Residents in southeast Regina and White City/ Emerald Park areas, as well as anyone travelling along Highways 1 and 33 east of Regina, may see a 20-foot flare being emitted from the 40-foot flare stacks temporarily attached to the pipeline at the TransGas block valves in the areas.
