This week’s oil spill happened earlier this week on Monday near Elk Point, Alberta. The pipeline is owned by Enbridge. According to Alberta’s Energy Resources, the spill did not enter in any waterways and no one was injured.
“The release occurred Monday at a pumping station about 15 miles from Elk Point, which is about 125 miles east of Edmonton. “
“The spill came from the Calgary Pipeline Company’s Athabasca pipeline, which transports oil from several oil sands projects in northeastern Alberta to a terminal in Hardisty, Alberta. The pipeline can carry 345,000 barrels of oil a day.”
