Apache Canada has been fined $350,000 in connection with two pipeline leaks.
The Alberta Energy Regulator says the company pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to operate its pipelines in accordance with provincial rules and regulations.
The first leak was found near Zama City in October 2013, leading to the release of over 18-hundred cubic metres of produced water, affecting 3.8 hectares of public land.
