The investigation into the Husky Oil spill on the North Saskatchewan River last summer has been turned over to the provincial Ministry of Justice.
Energy Minister Dustin Duncan said the investigation could see Husky face fines of up to one million dollars per day.
It has been said alarms went off indicating a spill, but no response came immediately with the province actually having to inform Husky of what had happened.
Duncan said on Thursday he doesn’t want to speak for Husky as to why that happened.
“I don’t want to speculate in terms of the decisions they made as an operator, that will be a part of the review by the Prosecutions Branch in determining whether or not a charge will be laid,” Duncan said.
Husky has said they will comply fully with the investigation.
They have already taken full responsibility for what happened.
