Director of Communications for Canada West Peter Murchland says the site has been shut down as Spectra investigates, but at this point it’s believed there is no public safety risk. 

“We’re happy to report that there’s no injuries to any employees or contractors; they’re all safe and accounted for, and there’s certainly no public safety risk” he reports. “The site’s shut down, contained, isolated, secured.” 

The B.C. Oil and Gas Commission and the National Energy Board have also been notified.

There were approximately 10 employees and contractors on the site at the time, conducting routine work.
