Keystone pipeline in South Dakota shut down after leak detected

Crews cleaning up Keystone Pipeline leak in Marshall County

TransCanada issued a statement Thursday afternoon after the Keystone Pipeline leaked approximately 210,000 gallons in South Dakota.

The company said its crews shut down the Keystone pipeline system early this morning between Hardisty, Alta.to Cushing, Okla., and a line to Patoka, Ill. and that the line is expected to remain shut while it responds to the spill.

TransCanada has not given a reason for the incident, which occurred days before the Nebraska Public Service Commission was due to announce a decision on Keystone XL, a 830,000-barrel expansion through the state.

TransCanada says on its website that the company has safely transported more than 1.5 billion barrels of oil, or about 63 billion gallons, through the system since operations began in 2010.

The spill occurred in Marshall County, SD near the small town of Amherst.

TransCanada estimates the pipeline leaked 5,000 barrels of oil, or about 210,000 gallons, before going offline. State regulators have already granted construction permits for the pipeline.

The pipeline would transport oilsands oil from Alberta through Montana and South Dakota to Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines that feed Texas Gulf Coast refineries.

The federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration didn't immediately return an email requesting additional information from The Associated Press.

A protest sign sits in the proposed path of the Keystone XL pipeline, in Silver Creek, Neb. The project has been delayed for several years and was revived this year through an executive order by President Trump.

The Keystone pipeline is part of a 2,687-mile system that also is to include the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
