Husky Energy now has at least another 30 days to submit its report into what caused thousands of litres of oil to spill into the North Saskatchewan River over the summer.
The company has been granted the extension from the Saskatchewan government. An estimated 225,000 litres seeped into the river in July. Husky said it has cleaned up all but 15,000 litres.
Originally, Husky had 90 days after the spill to file a report. An extension was requested since the company is waiting on its own reports from third-party engineering firms.
The extension means Husky won’t have to file the report until Nov. 21, 2016.
