CALGARY, AB, June 1, 2023 /CNW/ – Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd.’s (“Tidewater”) (TSX: TWM) downstream operations have resumed at its Prince George Refinery following a safe and successful planned turnaround. Scheduled on a four-year cycle, the turnaround was completed on time and on budget, with the maintenance investment representing the majority of Tidewater’s 2023 capital budget.
Additionally, Tidewater has resumed operations at its Brazeau River Complex (“BRC”), which was impacted by the wildfires in the area and related evacuation orders earlier in May. The facility outage is not expected to have a material impact on Tidewater’s 2023 financial outlook. Tidewater thanks our staff, contractors, firefighters, and industry partners for all their tireless efforts and support through these wildfires.
With major turnaround activities now complete and midstream operations fully functional, Tidewater’s forecasted second half free cash flow will enhance financial flexibility that supports increasing shareholder value.
