Enbridge reports crude oil release from a Regina pipeline terminal
Regina Terminal in Saskatchewan.
In a news release issued Wednesday, Enbridge said they shut down a portion of the pipeline around 11:55 p.m. CST Tuesday.
The company said the oil spill occurred entirely within a pumping station and was contained on-site in designated catchment areas.
"There are no impacts to the public, wildlife or waterways," the company said. "Nearby residents and businesses may detect a faint odour."
Enbridge said a cleanup of the oil was expected to be completed Thursday, but there was no estimate for when Line 4 would be restarted.
The company said initial estimates put the volume of the release at approximately 1,350 barrels, although that was subject to change.
It added that all regulatory, municipal and provincial officials have been informed and an investigation is underway.
