Natural gas pipeline ruptures for second time in a week involving Spectra Energy

June 29, 2012 - 1:21 PM

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. - There's been another natural gas pipeline accident in northeast B.C., — the second involving Spectra Energy in less than a week.

A line carrying sour gas ruptured Thursday night north of Fort St. John.

Spectra spokeswoman Rosemary Silva says the leak was isolated by 3 a.m. Friday and has been secured so there's no risk to the public.

No injuries have been reported and it's not known how much sour gas may have leaked.

Two workers were injured June 23 in a flash fire at a compressor station operated by Spectra Energy, north of Fort St. John.

The Transportation Safety Board is investigating both incidents. (MooseFM)
