  22. Shell Refinery Flare Warning – Sept 8th 2012
    The Shell Martinez Refinery will be doing some work on one of their flares over the weekend of Sep. 8 near the Pacheco Blvd. side of the refinery. A flare is a safety device that is used to combust excess gases and depressurize a unit or piece of equipment in the refinery. The testing of the flare can emit smoke for short periods, and cause some noise and rumbling at times. For more information, visit the Shell Martinez blog site at: http://blogs.shell.com/martinez/2012/08/flare-maintenance-the-weekend-of-sep-8/.
