  • Crews cleaning up Keystone Pipeline leak in Marshall County

"TransCanada (TSX, NYSE: TRP) crews safely shut down its Keystone pipeline at approximately 6 a.m. CST (5 a.m. MST) after a drop in pressure was detected in its operating system resulting from an oil leak that is under investigation".

Crews have shut down the Keystone pipeline after an estimated 5,000 barrels of oil leaked in South Dakota. The cause was being investigated.

At least 210,000 gallons of crude oil derived from oil sands-a thicker, sticker type of oil than conventional crude-spilled from the pipeline into an agricultural area, according to South Dakota's environment and natural resources agency. TransCanada's seven year old Keystone pipeline has been hounded by safety issues, with 35 spills in both Canada and the United States in its first year of operation alone.

TransCanada says that expects the pipeline to remain shut down as the company responds to the leak. This northern leg has been closed, said the company, but the southern leg of the system from Cushing to the Gulf Coast remains operational.

TransCanada is seeking to expand its Keystone pipeline network. Soon after Donald Trump became president, he signed memoranda to expedite the environmental review process for Keystone XL. The PSC will announce its long-awaited decision on the application Monday.
