Nexen pipeline leak in Alberta spills 5 million litres, covers about 16,000 square metres
snips,,,
One of the largest leaks in Alberta history has spilled about five million litres of emulsion from a Nexen Energy pipeline at the company's Long Lake oilsands facility south of Fort McMurray.

The leak was discovered Wednesday afternoon.

Nexen said in a statement its emergency response plan has been activated and personnel were onsite. The leak has been stabilized, the company said.



"All necessary steps and precautions have been taken, and Nexen will continue to utilize all its resources to protect the health and safety of our employees, contractors, the public and the environment, and to contain and clean up the spill," the company said in the statement issued Thursday.

Peter Murchland, public affairs manager for the Alberta Energy Regulator, said officials were notified late Wednesday and had staff onsite Thursday to work with Nexen.

"My understanding is that the pipeline and pad site had been isolated and shut-in earlier today, effectively stopping the source of the release," Murchland said

Nexen has contained the leak and started cleaning up the area, he said. There was no word on how long that might take.

Did we expect anything different after selling our resources to China? Thanks Harper.

Litres people its the new way to make spills look huge .One tri drive vacuum truck holds 20000 litres .Also its not oil its bitchumen if it came off a pad has not been processed into oil yet .The whole area has that stuff oozing out of the ground. Greentards and the media just love twisting everything out of proportion
