Has anyone heard much on the pipeline break out at Dickson Dam last night? Buddy told me Shell requested 8 crews and there are fish floating everywhere.

The main thing is that someone needs to make sure it gets cleaned up properly no matter the cost. Then the ERCB needs to check and see what sort of pipeline integrity program they were running and if it was being followed. If not then a huge fine would be in order. And more regulations regarding pipeline integrity.

Paul that is exactly right. If they have been neglecting their lines then pile on, but let's fix it then move forward.

Unfortunately this just makes getting oil to a coast more problematic.

I did some work for Peace Pipelines years ago where they send a smart pig through and then we would go behind and check problem spots.

I'm trying to figure out what Shell has to do with this at all? Its Plains Pipeline that ruptured!
