CALGARY (Bloomberg) -- Enbridge restarted
its Alberta Clipper pipeline after an oil spill Sunday at a
pump station near Regina, Saskatchewan, prompted
Canadas biggest oil pipeline company to close the line
as a precaution.
The Rowatt pumping station has been isolated and the line
restarted Sunday night just around 9:20 p.m. local time,
Enbridge said in a statement. The Calgary-based company and
regulators are investigating the incident, which led to the
release of 125 bbl of crude oil at the site.
The spill happened yesterday around 10:50 a.m. local time and
came from station piping rather than the main line, Enbridge
spokesman Graham White said yesterday in an e-mailed
statement. Almost all the oil was contained at the site and
there was no wildlife, water or public impact, he said.
The pipeline, also known as Line 67, is a 36 inch, 450 Mbopd
heavy oil lines thats a part of the Enbridge Mainline
from Hardisty, Alberta, to Superior, Wisconsin.
