Rumours of an oil spill near Kisbey are unfounded.

Local media was alerted anonymously to news that a large oil spill had occurred from a Crescent Point Energy oil well late Wednesday afternoon, however this was not the case, according to Dale Rinas, manager for SE Saskatchewan operations for Crescent Point Energy.

Rinas says he has visited the site and discovered the leak was nothing but water from a produced water line. He says a little of the fluid leaked into a private slough and was immediately cleaned up. The landowner was advised of the water leak.
