AER: Environmental charges laid against Plains Midstream for 2012 spill

The Alberta Energy Regulator said environmental charges have been laid against Plains Midstream Canada ULC for a 2012 pipeline incident (OGJ Online, June 8, 2012). AER said 2,900 bbl of sour crude were released from the Rangeland pipeline into the Red Deer River near Sundre, Alta.

AER cited a federal charge under the Fisheries Act and a provincial charge for failing to report a release of crude oil from a pipeline as required under Alberta law.

The provincial charge stems from an Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) investigation that found the company failed to report the release as required within Alberta’s Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act.
