From Kalamazoo to Husky, Parallel Pipeline Disasters

Mark Calzavara

There are many parallels between last week’s heavy oil spill from a Husky Energy pipeline in Saskatchewan and the Enbridge pipeline rupture in Kalamazoo Michigan almost exactly six years ago.

Both ruptures occurred while control room staff were restarting the flow in the pipelines.

In both cases, “anomalies” were indicated by computers systems monitoring the pipelines.

In both cases, the companies failed to interpret the “anomalies” as leaks.
