Husky Energy has asked for more time to submit technical reports on an oil pipeline spill into the North Saskatchewan River.
The Saskatchewan government says Husky has been granted a 30-day extension on the metallurgic report on the failed pipe, as well as on a geotechnical report on the land where the failure occurred.
The government says Husky will be providing its assessment of the cause of the spill by November. 21.
A one-page update provided by Husky says 225,000 litres of oil spilled into the river near Maidstone in July and affected an area of about 41,500 square metres.
It says about 210,000 litres has been recovered.
The spill forced the cities of North Battleford, Prince Albert and Melfort to shut off their water intakes from the river and find other water sources for almost two months.
