    Imperial Oil Limited (IOL) recently announced the completion of the first major maintenance turnaround at its Kearl facilities.

    The turnaround included preventative maintenance to the ore preparation plant hydrotransport, extraction and solvent recovery systems. Modifications were also made to the froth treatment instrumentation and control valves, offering enhanced reliability.

    These turnaround activities took place over the last two full weeks of September. During this time, the plant was offline and a total of 150,000 hours were worked.
