The Dawson Creek Daily News, quoting a spokesman for Calgary-based EnCana Corporation, says another natural gas leak took place a week ago today in the South Peace.
The spokesman says EnCana employees discovered the small leak, on a four-inch gathering system during a routine check in the Tomslake area, but are still trying to discover what caused it.
He says the employees were able to shut it down immediately without incident, but he can’t say if the line is back in service.
He does say no residents were affected by the leak, and he described the volume of sour gas released, as very minimal.
The newspaper says when asked why the news media had to learn about the leak from a concerned citizen, a week after the fact, the spokesman indicated…that was because it was a minor incident which didn’t warrant an extensive information release.
