Flights scheduled to fly workers in to Fort Hills today, Wednesday, and Thursday have been canceled until further notice and will be rescheduled when appropriate.
That from Suncor Energy this afternoon in a communique as many of its workers are being, or have been, evacuated from more southern locales. All Fort Hills personnel currently at site will remain at site today.
The company completed an orderly shutdown of operations at MacKay River and Base Plant, including the East Tank Farm and says Firebag currently is shutdown and on hot standby.
Suncor says Fort Hills continues to conduct operations, activities, and construction planning and is at low fire risk.
