Crescent Point Energy Corp. has discovered issues regarding the odorization level of some propane sold to primarily wholesale customers. Certain loads of propane sold from those plants appear to have not contained the appropriate levels of the odorant that is added to propane to help alert consumers should a gas leak occur. Using propane without the addition of sufficient odorization will not affect the functioning of any propane appliance. However, because propane is odorless, without the addition of sufficient odorization, consumers may not be alerted to a leak by the smell. While gas leaks are rare, failure to detect them can result in fire, explosions or personal injury.
