CALGARY – Nexen Energy says it is “preparing to comply” with requirements from the Alberta Energy Regulator following the agency’s order that the company cease operations of 95 pipelines in the province.

A news release Saturday from the company says it’s working to collect the information and documentation the regulator needs, and is looking forward to continuing to work with the regulator to resolve the issue.

The regulator issued the order late Friday due to what it called non-compliance surrounding pipeline maintenance and monitoring in its Long Lake oilsands project.

On July 15, a pipeline at the project southeast of Fort McMurray, Alta., leaked about five million litres of a mixture of bitumen, produced water and sand into muskeg.

Alberta Energy Regulator spokesman Bob Curran said Friday that the shut pipelines carry several products including crude oil, natural gas, salt water, fresh water and emulsion.

The company’s news release doesn’t say when it hopes to have the pipelines running again, but says it will provide additional information when it becomes available.
