Lloydminster – Husky Energy is embarking on a substantial pipeline project in northwest Saskatchewan, one that, once completed, will see the decommissioning of the pipeline that caused a spill in the North Saskatchewan River on July 21, 2016.

The company held two open houses in early November in Lloydminster and Maidstone where they outlined plans to construct a new crude and condensate pipeline to support it’s growing heavy oil thermal production in Saskatchewan.

Husky spokesperson Mel Duvall said via email on Nov. 20, “The two pipelines are 52 kilometres in length, consisting of a 20-inch crude pipeline, which will transport crude produced from our thermal operations north of the North Saskatchewan River to our complex in Lloydminster, and an 8-inch condensate pipeline, which will transport condensate from Lloydminster to our thermal operations.
