    The AER said it has not seen this style of leak seep into water before, which could put a dent in the argument that underground oil sands extraction methods are greening Alberta’s energy industry.
    The pipes did not leak, AER spokesman Bob Curran said. Instead, bitumen leaked into the slough from the bottom.

    “It is coming through the ground somewhere. We don’t know what caused it,” Mr. Curran said. “It is leaking directly into the body of water.”
