COME BY CHANCE — About 8:30 a.m. Friday, a pipeline was observed to be leaking bunker oil into Placentia Bay from the North Atlantic Refinery.
North Atlantic Refining Ltd. in a statement said it immediately activated its response procedure, and within one hour the product was contained. The spill is estimated to have leaked less than one barrel into the water.
The refinery said situation is under control and clean up was underway Friday, insisting there is no risk to the general public and no further risk to the environment.
