Qenos Olefins SCAL-2 plant start up status

Qenos would like to advise our neighbours and local community that we have encountered some operational issues with the start up of the Olefins SCAL-2 plant in Maidstone Street. Regrettably this has increased the length of the plant start up activity, and the associated flaring. We are looking to reduce the flare rate as much as possible to reduce the community impact while the operational issue is resolved. Once this operational  issue is resolved we anticipate a further 2-3 days to complete the startup with associated start up flaring. We will provide an updated timing once the operational issue has been resolved

Flaring will occur overnight, however, we will endeavour to manage this to minimise the potential for any disturbance to our neighbours. Refer to the "Sustainability and Community" tab at for more information about our flare operation.  We look forward to completing the return of the SCAL-2 plant to production with minimal impact or concern on the part of our neighbours and community. 

If you have any queries please contact the Qenos Environmental Advisor Mr. Les Harman by email at or call the Environment Action Line on 1800 061 050

Any updates of the start up timing will be published on the Qenos and ACNCG websites: > Click on “Community Updates” Link. or
