Enbridge issues response to PG pipeline rupture

Enbridge pipeline ruptures, sparks fire near Prince George UPDATE: Enbridge issues response to PG pipeline rupture

One of two pipelines has been turned back on after a natural gas explosion damaged the other and saw homes evacuated on Tuesday, but British Columbians are still being asked to conserve gas as a possible shortage looms.

An explosion and fire in a pipeline that provides natural gas to about 1.5 million customers in British Columbia, Washington state and OR has prompted a plea from energy companies to conserve fuel as Indigenous leaders called for assurances of safety.

McTeague said the duration of the spike in prices will depend on the length of time the pipeline is out of service.

"A cause will be determined following an investigation of the incident", Barnes said.

The company will update its customers as soon as it is in a position to offer something new, said Stout.

A natural gas line disruption in northern BC means that some UBC buildings may be without heating, hot water or fuel for cooking appliances.

The rupture occurred on a natural gas transmission pipeline owned and operated by Enbridge about 13.5 kilometres from Prince George on Tuesday evening, Enbridge spokesman Michael Barnes said in an emailed statement.

The effect was already being felt on Vancouver Island Wednesday. An adjacent 30-inch pipeline was also depressurized for safety.

"To me, it's just literally how vulnerable we are in that area", he said.

"Enbridge emergency crews did respond and they have isolated and are finishing the pressurizing of the two natural gas lines in the vicinity to contain this incident and an area was cordoned off".

"FortisBC is asking BCIT to urgently limit natural gas usage", read the message from the school. "So we are asking everybody to chip in", said Stout.

More than 30 buildings of the Vancouver campus may be affected.

FortisBC is urging its customers to conserve after an explosion and fire on the pipeline that supplies most of the natural gas to the province.

A pipeline explosion has been confirmed to be the reason for a large fire outside of Prince George.
