Emergency crews were called in on Sunday following a crude oil spill at a Kinder Morgan pump station north of Kamloops, British Columbia.
The British Columbia Ministry of the Environment reported that a flow meter had leaked 100 liters of crude oil into the ground at the Darfield pump station.
No streams were affected by this leak which was properly contained.
The leak comes just days before the end of Kinder Morgan’s deadline for assurances that his Trans Mountain Pipeline Project will be completed.
The company suspended all non-essential work on the project in April, citing BC government actions that put the viability of the pipeline in jeopardy.
