Cold Lake, Hot Bitumen: CNRL’s Bitumen Blowout

December 12, 2013

Wild Lands Advocate article, October 2013, by Carolyn Campbell. A bitumen spill of 1.6 million litres over a 10 kilometer range has occurred at the Canadian Natural Resources Limited’s (CNRL) Primrose oil sands operation. This serious incident is followed by poor public disclosure, massive environmental contamination, and questions regarding the risks of high pressure extraction methods.

“If there’s a silver lining here it rests in the fact that, because of the emergency protection order, there may be more transparency and ENGO/First Nations involvement on the clean up and impacts at this site.”
