Damage discovered at Dawson Creek area well site

Calgary, Alberta, (January 5, 2009) – During the morning of Sunday, January 4, 2009, a crew doing routine work noticed damage to a small building housing a natural gas meter at an EnCana well site in northeastern British Columbia. There was no damage to the site’s natural gas wellhead or the pipeline and the damage did not cause a gas leak at the facility. As a precaution, the well was immediately shut in and site was secured. At no point was there a risk to the public or EnCana employees. The site is about 20 kilometres southeast of Dawson Creek.

Due to the events in the area during the past couple of months, the RCMP was called to investigate the damage to determine the cause. The B.C. Oil and Gas Commission has also been notified.

EnCana’s primary focus is on the safety of employees, workers and residents at and around its facilities. EnCana continues to work with the RCMP on the security measures that were implemented following the previous incidents.
