It was a very brief appearance for Husky Energy in a Lloydminster courtroom Thursday.
Husky is facing provincial and federal charges in connection to a 2016 oil spill on the North Saskatchewan River near Maidstone that saw 225,000 litres of oil get spilled into the water.
All sides agreed to set June 21 as the next court date.
Husky is facing one provincial charge alleging it “unlawfully permitted the discharge of a substance that caused an adverse environmental effect,” contravening the Environmental Management and Protection Act according to the Saskatchewan Government.
The maximum fine for that EMPA charge is $1 million.
The spill required a substantial cleanup effort that also required the shutdown of intakes into water treatment plants downstream, including the cities of North Battleford and Prince Albert.
