Saskatchewan will soon learn more about how the Husky oil spill happened.
Husky Energy Inc. has 90 days to investigate and file a report with the government into the incident this summer. With the spill happening July 20, that deadline is now up.
With other third-party reports to be filed as well, Energy Minister Dustin Duncan was unwilling to provide a timeline of when all this will be released.
“We will have to take the Husky information and any follow-up they are required to do and then formulate a report of our own, so I think we are making a lot of progress on that but I don’t want to give a date,” Duncan said.
“We are still waiting to hear back from the third-party group that is helping on more of the technical aspects so they are still doing their work.”
The government has promised to make public the entire investigation into the oil spill.
In July, 220,000 litres of oil spilled into the North Saskatchewan River impacting the drinking water of 60,000 residents from North Battleford, Prince Albert and along the river toward Melfort.
The investigations being done by government include questions on the current pipeline inspection process and the environmental assessments surrounding them.
