Regina Oil Spill

Cleanup Continuing

by Daniel Johnson


A leak occured about 5 KM south of Regina, Saskatchewan on Saturday January 18, coming from the Enbridge Clipper pipeline that pumps  449,000 barrels per day of oil per day from Hardisty, Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin. It was shut down at about 11 am after losing approximately 125 barrels. 

Graham White, the spokesperson for Enbridge, claims that the spill has mostly been contained to Enbridges property, with only a small amount carrying to a nearby farm field.
