In the event of a spill, Husky responds immediately, implementing containment and recovery plans while safeguarding workers, the public and the environment.
The Company has a number of internal programs across its operations to minimize releases and spills, including a pipeline integrity management program, emergency response plans and a spill response program.
In 2014, the volume of hydrocarbons released was comparable to the year before.
The decrease in the volume of other fluids is primarily because of the amount of produced and process water released per incident. This can be attributed in part to a focus on safely abandoning portions of pipeline that are no longer in use and proactively managing lines identified as high risk.
