Qenos Olefins SCAL-2 Plant start-up status update

On 10th December Qenos advised that we were moving the SCAL-2 plant back to a shutdown status to reduce the flaring impact on our neighbours while works proceeded to remove water from the refrigerated section of the SCAL-2 plant. 

The water removal process is nearing completion and we anticipate the SCAL-2 plant start-up re-commencing on Monday 21st December and being completed by 24th December.

Start-up operations that have the highest flaring rates will be scheduled to begin in the morning to minimise the evening and night time flaring and its impact on our neighbours 

Regrettably the overall time and associated flaring required for this SCAL-2 start-up is significantly more than Qenos had planned and we apologise for the increased disruption to our neighbours and communities.

Refer to the attachment for more detail about the start-up schedule and flare management.


 The "Sustainability and Community" tab at has more information about our flare operation.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss the SCAL-2 start-up  please contact the Qenos Environmental Advisor Mr. Les Harman by email at or call the Environment Action Line on 1800 061 050

Any further updates on the start-up will be published on the Qenos and ACNCG websites: > Click on “Community Updates” Link. Or
