EnCana Corporation made it’s first court appearance Tuesday in Dawson Creek.
The case has now been moved to Feb. 8, 2011 when the company will apparently enter a plea.
The Ministry of the Environment has filed two charges against the corporation. EnCana is charged with introducing business-related waste into the environment and failing to report a spill of a polluting substance.
The charges are in relation to a sour gas leak that occurred in November of 2009. The leak was caused by sand that had eroded a piece of pipeline infrastructure, called a ‘Tee’.
