(Reuters) - Canada's energy regulator on Thursday said it was responding to a crude oil release at Tundra Energy Marketing Ltd's Ingoldsby terminal southeast of Regina, Saskatchewan.

The incident occurred on Jan. 31 and did not result in any fire or injuries, the National Energy Board said, adding that it would verify the company's initial report that about five cubic meters of oil was spilled.

The latest incident comes days after Tundra Energy confirmed that its pipeline was the source of a leak of some 200,000 liters (52,830 gallons) of crude oil onto aboriginal land in Saskatchewan that was discovered by a member of the community.
