EnCana believes this was another explosion

The RCMP Integrated National Security Enforcement Team and EnCana are investigating another leak at an EnCana facility near Pouce Coupe.

The EnCana well site is located about 8km south of Dawson Creek in a remote area. The sweet gas site is still leaking at this time and crews are working to repair the leak (as of 4pm Wednesday). Once the leak has stopped, the RCMP will begin their investigation.

Shortly after 8am Wednesday morning an EnCana staff member was doing a routine check and noticed a well head had been disturbed. After closer inspection he noticed a small leak and found the leak had started shortly after 2am Wednesday morning.

Rhona DelFrari with EnCana says they believe this is another explosion. [asset|aid=1598|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=fc8f393dd87b1d51ea2bd23262f3a690-Rhona – Believe it is an explosion_1_Pub.mp3]

According to EnCana the closest home is over 3km away from the facility. The RCMP Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) have assembled and are en route. Cpl. Dan Moskaluk says they haven’t determined if this is a criminal act. [asset|aid=1599|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=fc8f393dd87b1d51ea2bd23262f3a690-Dan-what was found_1_Pub.mp3]

Cpl. Dan Moskaluk says the INSET team has been called in so they have the right people in place. [asset|aid=1600|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=fc8f393dd87b1d51ea2bd23262f3a690-Dan-rightpeopleinplace_1_Pub.mp3]

The four bombings between last October and January all targeted EnCana facilities near Toms Lake, BC. No injuries have been reported from any of the bombings so far. Back in January of this year EnCana offered a $500,000 reward for any tips leading to a conviction in the case. That reward remains in place.

The RCMP are asking the public that if they have any information to contact their local detachment or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
