Lucy you got some ‘splainin to do! No, really. What’s the deal with the heavy flares being seen on the I-10 coming from SASOL’s local plant? As a new resident to the city, I have always been fascinated by the olympic style torches that almost serves as an active logo for the plant. When I usually see it lit, I assume business is good! Well, if that’s the case, business is on fire this week! I had to pull over and get video footage. It’s enough to make you swerve in your vehicle from looking too long. So look below instead.
According to KPLC, The Office of Homeland security has stated that there’s an issue with a unit at SASOL causing the excessive flaring, but there is no immediate threat to safety. Hmmm…We’ll see.
