Another oil spill in Saskatchewan was quietly reported Wednesday night.
The Calgary-based company handling a recent pipeline spill in the province is now dealing with another smaller spill in the southeast corner of Saskatchewan.
On Wednesday night, the National Energy Board issued a news release responding to a release of crude oil at Tundra’s Ingoldsby terminal near the village of Storthoaks, Sask.
“The National Energy Board (NEB) is responding to a release of crude oil at Tundra Energy Marketing Limited’s (Tundra) Ingoldsby Terminal. The Terminal is located 270 km southeast of Regina, near Storthoaks, Saskatchewan.
Tundra reported the incident to the NEB on Tuesday, January 31, the same day the incident occurred. NEB staff will verify the company’s initial report that five cubic metres of crude oil was released and contained on company property, with four cubic metres of the oil being recovered.
There were no injuries, no fire, no nearby residences were evacuated, and no threat to public safety. The government of Saskatchewan and the Transportation Safety Board have been notified of the incident.”
According to the report, 5,000 litres of crude oil was released and contained on company property –4,000 of it being recovered.
There were no injuries, no fire, no nearby residences were evacuated, and no threat to public safety.
The Government of Saskatchewan and the Transportation Safety Board were notified.
Tundra is still dealing with the pipeline spill discovered Jan. 20 on Ocean Man First Nation territory.
That spill is under investigation by the Saskatchewan government which is trying to determine why the pipeline’s leak detection system did not flag the leak.
The NEB said it will verify Tundra conducts an adequate and appropriate clean-up and remediation of any environmental effects caused by the spill.
