Clean-up is underway after a pipeline spill into Pinto Creek, about 50 kilometres southwest of Grande Prairie.
Melanie Veriotes with the Alberta Energy Regulator says they were notified of the spill Tuesday by Canadian Natural Resources Limited.
“The area where the release occurred is approximately 20 kilometres upstream of the Wapiti River. CNRL reported the release was point-five cubic metres. The release contained sweet natural gas, condensate and produced water.”
She adds the emergency phase for this spill has ended
“We are continuing our investigation. The pipeline is isolated and depressurized. Clean-up activities are underway.”
Veriotes says water samples have met all drinking water guidelines. There has been no impact reported on wildlife.
