(www.bonterraenergy.com) (BNE.TO) ("Bonterra" or the "Company") today provides an update on the previously reported release of emulsion related to a pipeline that severed on August 15, 2019 after a creek bank collapsed as a result of area flooding approximately 25 km southwest of Drayton Valley, AB .
