Second Update on Fort McMurray Wildfire
CALGARY, May 5, 2016 – Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina" or the "Company") once again, would like to state that the Company's first focus is to the safety of its employees and contractors. Pembina's employees and contractors are safe and accounted for, and have safe places to stay for the next several days.
At this time, Pembina's Algar to Cheecham Lateral remains fully operational but is not delivering due to the shutdown of downstream facilities.
All other Pembina facilities in the Fort McMurray area remain fully operational. Pembina will continue to monitor and assess the safety of the continued operation of our facilities and react accordingly.
Pembina's employees and contractors are strongly encouraged to follow the instructions of local authorities and to remember to keep safety first.
To assist the evacuees of the Fort McMurray wildfire, Pembina has donated $50,000 to the Red Cross. Pembina will also match employee contributions to the Red Cross through its employee PATH Program.
Pembina's thoughts are with those affected by these evacuations and the Company encourages everyone to follow the directions of the emergency management officials and above all, stay safe.
