As Tundra Energy Marketing Limited continues to clean up after an oil spill near Stoughton, Sask., federal regulators are reporting another, smaller spill.
The National Energy Board (NEB) is investigating after a leak of crude oil at Tundra’s Ingoldsby Terminal, located 270 kilometres southeast of Regina near the village of Storthoaks, Sask.
The spill was reported to the NEB on Jan. 31, the same day it occurred.
In a media release, the NEB said it’s working to verify Tundra’s initial report that 5,000 litres of crude oil leaked but was contained on company property. Tundra also reported that 4,000 litres of the spilled oil was being recovered.
There were no injuries or fire, no nearby homes were evacuated and there was no threat to public safety, according to an NEB release issued Wednesday.
The regulator said it is working with Tundra to determine what caused the spill.
Both the provincial government and the Transportation Safety Board have been notified.
This comes less than two weeks after a pipeline owned by Tundra leaked 200,000 litres of oil north of Stoughton, on First Nations agricultural land.
