Calgary-based Triology Energy Corporation discovered a leak on one of its oil pipelines in northwest Alberta and is currently investigating the cause of the rupture.
The discovery was made Thursday at its Kaybob Montney Oil project near Fox Creek, where the company found oil emulsion in a flowing marsh area.
The company called in the Alberta Energy Regulator to respond to the incident as well as immediately began its emergency response plan.
The affected area of the pipe has been isolated, and investigations are ongoing. The amount of oil that spilled has yet to be determined.
No injuries occurred as a result of the incident, according to the company.
