Enbridge is responding to an incident that occurred on Thursday 30 April, at its pump station near Herschel, Saskatchewan, Canada, involving an oil release of an estimated 150 m3. The majority of oil was released inside the pump station fence line. An estimated 20 m3 migrated offsite and has been contained in a ditch. The release was discovered by Enbridge personnel.
The source of the release was a pipeline connection within the pump station fence line, which has now been isolated. Crews are on-site, clean-up has been initiated, and no landowners are affected. There are no immediate safety concerns and Enbridge is co-operating fully with authorities in its response.
