As we continue to do all our testing and get our new natural gas plant in Whitehorse ready to go into operation, we will again today be working with the liquid odorant mercaptan. Since fuels such as natural gas and propane are odorless, mercaptan is mixed with them so that if there is a gas leak, it can be easily detected. Mercaptan has a smell of rotten eggs or cabbage. If you notice the smell today, don't be alarmed. Contact us if you have any questions. Thanks.
