According to news sources, Husky Energy Inc is currently undertaking a cleanup operation after a crude oil pipeline spill near Calgary last week. The Alberta Energy Regulator has stated that the pipeline in question has been shutdown while the company works on isolating the oil. The amount of product leaked and the cause of the spill are still unknown.

As cited by Reuters: “According to the agency, the incident happened last Thursday, and the company is still working to isolate the oil, which leaked into the Coxhill Creek stream west of Alberta's largest city of Calgary. There has been no impact to wildlife, according to the regulator.”

Mel Duvall, a spokesperson for Husky Energy, stated: “It is a relatively small area of operations and the spill was light oil.”

The Calgary Herald reported that Husky Energy stated it is using vacuum trucks to clean up the site, which is located 22 km west of Bragg Creek (Alberta).

Reportedly, no wildlife has been impacted by the spill.
