This is Update #9 of the Red Deer River Oil Spill…

  • Plains Midstream Canada continues to blog its cleanup efforts surrounding the Rangeland Pipeline System failure near Sundre, Alberta.   [ Web Updates ]
  • Greenpeace Canada was denied the space to place an ad on a Pattison Outdoor billboard in downtown Edmonton, AB. The ad — a response to the recent Rangeland Pipeline System failure, near Sundre, AB — was designed to draw attention to the seriousness of oil spills and to encourage Premier Alison Redford to appoint an independent body to investigate the safety of the 400,000 kilometres of pipeline that criss-cross the Province of Alberta.   [ Article ]


  • The Rangeland Pipeline System is made up of approximately 1285 kilometres of gathering and trunk pipelines.   [ Link ]
  • The majority of the Rangeland Pipeline System is approximately 50 years old.   [ Link ]
  • According to Google Maps, Jackson Creek is approximately 50 km from the Gleniffer Reservoir — where the booms have been set up to contain the oil spill. That means, the oil spill has travelled 50 km along the Red Deer River.   [ Map ]
