Shell refinery ‘upset’ leaves Alberta gas stations dry

A Shell official says the "supply interruption" is due to an "upset" at its Scotford Refinery near Fort Saskatchewan



EDMONTON—Shell Canada says several gas stations in Alberta are out of gas due to a problem at its refinery northeast of Edmonton.

A Shell official says the “supply interruption” is due to an “upset” at its Scotford Refinery near Fort Saskatchewan that happened on August 9.

It’s not known exactly how many stations have been affected by the gas shortage or when they would be back up and running.

Shell says staff are working to solve the problem.

Company spokesman Cameron Yost says the company is looking for other sources of gasoline so its stations will have product.

Yost says it’s not known when the problem at the refinery will be solved.
