Inter Pipeline Ltd’s 82,000 barrel per day Mid Saskatchewan crude oil pipeline has lost power following stormy weather in western Canada, a company spokeswoman said on Wednesday.The regional gathering pipeline delivers light and heavy crude into Kerrobert, Saskatchewan.
“We do not know the length of this particular outage, it is based on the power outage and the weather over the last 24 hours,” Inter Pipeline spokeswoman Breanne Oliver said.
Fierce windstorms across much of Alberta and Saskatchewan on Tuesday caused widespread power outages and fanned fast-moving prairie fires in some areas.
Weather conditions improved on Wednesday but there was no immediate estimate from regional utilities on when power would be restored.
