The Alberta Energy Regulator is investigating an oil spill southwest of Edmonton.
The spill happened in the Washout Creek Natural Area, which is about 150 kilometres from Edmonton.
The AER first received notice of the spill on Thursday night.
It’s believed 40 cubic metres of crude oil spilled into the creek, a tributary of the North Saskatchewan River.
Containment booms have been put in place.
The pipeline belonged to Bonterra Energy Corporation which has been ordered to clean up the site.
