TransCanada pipeline leaks 210000 gallons of oil near SD, ND border
TransCanadashut down part of its Keystone pipeline after an oil leak of about 5,000 barrels Thursday in Marshall County, South Dakota.
No reason for the leak has been given by the company.
Amherst is about 200 miles north of Sioux Falls, S.D., and about 25 miles from the state's border with North Dakota. They also said the shut down does not affect the Marketlink pipeline system, which uses the facilities of the southern leg of the Keystone system from Cushing to the Gulf Coast.
The company said crews were able to shut down the pipeline early Thursday morning and began investigating the leak.
In Canada, TransCanada reported21 incidents during the first year of operation, mainly small quantities of oil being spilled near pump stations and later cleaned up.
Opponents of Keystone XL say the pipeline would pass through the Sandhills, an ecologically fragile region of grass-covered sand dunes, and would cross the land of farmers and ranchers who don't want it.
The same pipeline leaked about 17,000 gallons past year near Freeman, South Dakota. State regulators have already granted construction permits for the pipeline.
TransCanada is seeking approval from the Nebraska Public Service Commission for the final section of a second pipeline project, the Keystone XL. The project and its route through Nebraska has been controversial.
The federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration didn't immediately return an email requesting additional information from The Associated Press. Based on the safety record of Keystone I, Nebraska's PSC should carefully consider the impacts of TransCanada's much larger Keystone XL pipeline as it weighs its decision on Monday.
