The National Energy Board (NEB) is responding to an Enbridge Pipelines Ltd. incident that occurred on Friday 17 February in an industrial area of Strathcona County, Alberta. The incident resulted in a contained release of oil condensate into an open excavation pit.
The pipeline was shut in and containment and clean-up operations are ongoing. Enbridge has reported that approximately 200 m3 of oil condensate was released.
There were no injuries, no fire, no evacuations and no risk to public safety. As a precaution, the company has shut in five nearby pipelines.
NEB staff are on site and will verify that Enbridge conducts an adequate and appropriate clean-up and remediation of any environmental effects caused by the accident.
All federal and provincial agencies have been notified.
