The company says that during the preparation stage, there will be increased flaring and potentially dark smoke as systems are brought into service.
"When this is complete the flare will return to its normal operation," the company said in a statement.
"Flaring is an integral part of our plant's operational and safety management systems.
"We monitor and manage air quality emissions in accordance with the environmental authority."
