In The Observer

Residents reported a strong odour in the vicinity of the Imperial Oil refinery in Sarnia on Wednesday.

A plant spokesperson said the refinery had not experienced any operational issues and had not detected any off-site odours through its own monitoring.

Kate Jordan, a spokesperson with the Ontario Environment Ministry, confirmed the plant did report a “pinhole’ leak in a propane line.

The plan was to reduce pressure in the line and have the leak stopped by 6 p.m. on Thursday.

A ministry officer was to visit the refinery to assess the situation Wednesday evening.
