The sentence was handed down in provincial court last Friday after the company pleaded guilty to an offence under the Fisheries Act.
In a release, Environment Canada says $113,000 will go toward its Environmental Damages Fund and the remaining $12,000 will be paid as a fine. Canadian Natural has also been added to the Environmental Offenders Registry.
In May 2010, about 6,000 litres of crude spilled from an emergency overflow tank at a Canadian Natural site near the town of Spirit River.
Of that, 750 litres entered Sneddon Creek, a tributary to the Peace River.
Environment Canada says its investigation concluded the spill was caused by valves that were left open and that the Calgary-based company failed to ensure operational procedures were followed.
