On the afternoon of Aug. 19, a SaskPower construction crew who were in the process of installing regulator structural equipment north of North Portal accidentally encountered and damaged a four-inch flow line about four feet below the surface.
SaskPower spokesman Tyler Hopson said repairs to the line were required, but the incident did not involve any injuries.
The flow line, it was reported, is the property of Spartan Energy Corp.
SaskPower’s safety team will establish an investigation into the event to determine what went wrong.
The original thought was the flow line may have contained gas, but a call to the company did not result in any confirmation of what products were being transferred via the damaged line.
There was also no estimate of any leakage, but Hopson said the incident was not considered to be one involving major implications so any leakage was probably minor in volume and risk.
He added, the SaskPower investigation report, should be released within a few weeks.
