The black plant maintenance outage, which started May 26 at the Great Plains Synfuels Plant near Beulah, ND, is complete.

Gas production resumed July 5 when one train was returned to service. The second train came on line July 10.

More than 7,000 maintenance tasks were completed during the outage with an additional 1,400 contractors on site at the peak of the outage.

Plans are to have a black plant maintenance outage at the Synfuels Plant about every 10 years. The next one is tentatively set for June 2023.
