Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Enbridge Inc., Canada’s biggest oil pipeline company, said it shut its Alberta Clipper pipeline as a precaution today after an oil spill at a pump station near Regina, Saskatchewan.

The spill happened around 10:50 a.m. local time at the Rowatt pump station and came from station piping rather than the main line, Enbridge spokesman Graham White said in an e-mailed statement. About 125 barrels of crude oil were released, with nearly all contained at the site, White said.

Canada’s National Energy Board said in a separate statement that it sent an emergency response team to monitor and assess the response of the Calgary-based company.

Enbridge expects to restart the Alberta Clipper line soon and complete the clean-up this weekend, White said. There was no wildlife, water or public impacts from the spill, he said.
