There's been an oil spill northeast of Edmonton.
The Energy Resources Conservation Board says the leak of heavy crude oil happened Monday at a pumping station on Enbridge Inc.'s (TSX:ENB) Athabasca pipeline about 24 kilometres southeast of Elk Point.
Enbridge estimates about 230,000 litres leaked, but the ERCB's Darin Barter says that amount hasn't been confirmed.
Barter says the pipeline has been shut off and the pumping station has been isolated.
He also says the oil has not spilled into any waterways, nor were there any evacuations or injuries due to the leak.
The ERCB is investigating.
