TransCanada has confirmed a break in its Nova natural gas pipeline system, about 6 miles north of Rocky Mountain House in Alberta.

The Ferrier North Lateral pipeline was stopped after the incident.

No injuries have been reported at this time. 

“The nearest home is located more than 500 meters away and TransCanada has been in regular contact with this landowner to ensure their continued safety,” TransCanada spokesperson Shawn Howard told Reuters.

The replacement supply of natural gas for heating will be provided to customers who may be impacted by the disruption, the Calgary Herald reported.

The cause of the break is not known, and the incident is being investigated by the Transportation Safety Board and National Energy Board.
