Mystery fuel leak seeps into Burrard Inlet

(VANCOUVER SUN) — Chevron Corporation has been trying for weeks to locate the source of a “historic” leak from its Burnaby oil and gas refinery — a leak that has been seeping still-unknown amounts of oil, gas and diesel fuel into the Burrard Inlet since at least April 21.

Ray Lord, a spokesman for the multinational oil and gas company, said he has no idea how long the seepage from the nearly 70-year-old plant has been happening, but that Chevron first alerted the authorities about the leak on April 21, after discovering the toxic pollutants on the waters and beaches of the Burrard Inlet.
