Condensate Release Near Resthaven

At approximately 4 p.m. on June 9, 2016, a condensate release was observed at a pipeline right of way near the ConocoPhillips Resthaven gas plant, 65 km northeast of Grande Cache, Alberta. Further investigation revealed the presence of condensate on nearby Webb Creek.

There are no residents in the impacted area and no threat to public safety. We activated our emergency response plan and contacted the appropriate regulatory authorities. Since then, the pipeline has been shut down and isolated, and we are taking steps to mitigate any environmental impact.
