The QCLNG flare will be smokier than usual from today until Wednesday.

For safety, an LNG storage tank will be purged with nitrogen, to remove any oxygen, ahead of cooling for LNG storage.

The purged gas will cause greater flaring, which the company says ias the most environmentally friendly way to manage gas releases.

The facility shut down for two weeks on March 10 as part of the commissioning process of Train 1.

An increase in flaring activity and associated smoke emissions was anticipated for a few days at the beginning and end of the shutdown.
