Kinder Morgan admits using 'defective equipment' and making 'calculation error'

Kinder Morgan's Canadian subsidiary, Trans Mountain, says a "calculation error" was the cause of mistakes in a report that failed to identify environmental violations committed during recent construction activity in May. The violations of the federal Fisheries Act have been an ongoing problem at the Westridge Marine Terminal in metro Vancouver, National Observer reported on June 12.

Under 'world-leading' plan, Canada let Kinder Morgan break rules for months

Kinder Morgan put fish, porpoises, sea lions and other marine life in danger near an oil terminal in Vancouver, says a leaked federal warning letter that warns the company could face prosecution for its violations. The letter from the Fisheries and Oceans Department (DFO) notes that the company also went months without filing mandatory construction reports before federal officials noticed.
