Resource is brought to you by the Alberta Energy Regulator.
Alberta - March 12, 2020

An Alberta court ruled on March 11 that Journey Energy Inc. is to pay $125,000 for a pipeline spill in 2017.

Just before the Canada Day long weekend in 2017, two breakpoints on the Journey pipeline near Winfield, Alberta spilled a mix of crude oil and produced water killing fish, squirrels, and amphibians.

The Alberta Energy Regulator responded to the spill when it happened and laid charges against Journey in 2019.
