NEB leads investigation of pipeline leak

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 22 -- Canada's National Energy Board is leading an investigation of a July 15 crude oil leak from a Terasen Inc. pipeline near Abbotsford, BC.

NEB said an undetermined amount of oil had leaked from the facility into Marshall and Kilgaard creeks. The pipeline is shut down for repair. Crews have installed berms and weirs to contain the spill.

A 300-m stretch of creek downstream of the facility has been affected, NEB said.

Water sampling conducted to date does not indicate the presence of hydrocarbons outside the spill containment area.
