OGC helps police rescue stranded worker

By energeticcity.ca staff

The B.C. Oil and Gas commission has helped out in another rescue operation in Northeastern B.C.

A release from the OGC today says the commission was needed after an individual working out of the Bivouac / Hay River area got his vehicle stuck on Thursday, Feb 4th.

The unidentified resource worker was unable to make any calls from his location, but did manage to get a text message to a friend, who called 9-1-1. 

Once police were notified of the stranded invidual, they contacted the OGC, who got on to Husky Oil, and determined the best course of action would be to send out a team from the RCMP detachment in Assumption, Alberta.  That detachment quickly sent out members on snowmobiles, and the individual was safely rescued.

OCG Chief Engineer Ken Paulson says the rescue is “another example of the great things that can be accomplished by pooling resources and working together.”
