Reducing Benzene Emissions

The Government of Saskatchewan's Ministry of Energy and Resources requires licensees with glycol dehydrators to reduce and report benzene emissions as outlined in the Guideline S-18: Reduce Benzene Emissions from Glycol Dehydrators.

Licensees must comply with Guideline S-18 when planning to operate a glycol dehydrator in Saskatchewan including:

  • Evaluate dehydration requirements in order to achieve the lowest possible benzene emission levels;
  • Retain appropriate analysis documents for review by regulatory agencies;
  • Follow the public consultation process outlined in the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers' Benzene Control Best Management Practices;
  • Ensure that all dehydrators meet benzene emission limits;
  • Complete and post at the site the Saskatchewan Dehydrator Engineering and Operations Sheet to determine the benzene emissions from each dehydrator; and
  • Complete by July 1 of each year the Annual Dehydrator Benzene Inventory Sheet and submit it by email to

These requirements will be subject to a compliance review by the ministry. Regulatory requirements are those rules that licensees must meet and against which the ministry may take enforcement actions.
