Pipeline spill sends 22,000 barrels of oil mix into Alberta muskeg
A huge pipeline spill has released 22,000 barrels of oil and water into muskeg in the far northwest of Alberta. The spill ranks among the largest in North America in recent years, a period that has seen a series of high-profile accidents that have undermined the energy industry's safety record.... The most recent spill was discovered May 19 emanating from a pipeline belonging to Pace Oil & Gas Ltd.... The spill has yet to be contained, although "we're very close," Pace chief executive Fred Woods said in an interview Wednesday.... As with many recent pipeline accidents, Calgary-based Pace did not detect a problem, but was informed of the leak by another company after the spill was spotted from an aircraft.
