A sour natural gas well about 19 kilometres northwest of Hythe, AB, Canada, has blown overnight while a crew was working at the rig. Energy Resources Conservation Board (“ERCB”) spokesman Bob Curran says no injuries have been reported.
Coincidentally, Wiebo Ludwig and several supporters were camped near a well site overnight to protest the danger gas wells present. At this point, the RCMP say the blowout is not considered to be suspicious.
