Federated Co-operatives Limited updates on unscented propane

Saskatoon, SK, CANADA, 2015-11-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — Co-op is working with customers in Saskatchewan and Manitoba to eliminate safety concerns about unscented propane.

Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) has determined that 124 Co-op cylinder filling locations in these provinces may have distributed propane from one of its suppliers, Crescent Point Energy, that didn’t contain the mandatory amount of safety odour.

This list details all of the potentially affected locations that may have received unscented propane, as well as the time frames in which they may have been affected.

Testing or refilling propane cylinders

Customers who last filled their cylinders at one of the locations in the list above during the time frames identified for 2014-15 can bring their cylinders to the nearest Co-op filling station to be tested and/or refilled.The deadline to bring in cylinders is Dec. 31, 2015.

If a customer last filled their cylinder outside of the time frames or locations detailed in the list, the propane supplied should be properly odourized and no action should be needed.

Most Co-op supplied cylinder filling locations have odourized propane

FCL has been investigating this matter since it — along with other propane retailers in Western Canada and the United States — received notice last month that Crescent Point Energy may not have added the safety odour that alerts people to a potential leak.

Co-op is testing tanks at affected sites and increasing the safety odour levels where necessary.
