Husky Energy was been granted a second adjournment of its court case until Sept. 13 arising from a July 2016 oil pipeline spill.
The adjournment was made by Judge Kim Young following a phone-in request at provincial court in Lloydminster Sask. on June 21.
It was a joint request by counsel for Husky and the federal and provincial Crown to give the Calgary-based company more time to review the disclosure material.
Husky Energy Inc. and pipeline licence holder Husky Oil Operations Ltd. each face a total of 10 charges of violating federal and provincial laws stemming from a leak of 225,000 litres of diluted oil near Maidstone.
The charges were laid on March 22 following a 19-month joint federal/provincial investigation into the spill.
About 90,000 litres made it into the river forcing the downstream cities of North Battleford, Prince Albert and Melfort to shut off their water intakes for almost two months with cleanup efforts costing Husky about $100 million.
Environment and Climate Change Canada laid nine charges against Husky Energy Inc. and Husky Oil Operations Limited.
If convicted, Husky could face millions in fines including a maximum of $1 million a day for the provincial charge under the Environmental Management and Protection Act.
Husky made its first court appearance in Lloydminster on March 29.
