Keystone pipeline in South Dakota shut down after leak detected

Crews cleaning up Keystone Pipeline leak in Marshall County

TransCanada shut down part of its Keystone pipeline after an oil leak of about 5,000 barrels Thursday in Marshall County, South Dakota.

TransCanada said in a statement it discovered the leak 6 a.m. on Thursday after systems detected a drop in pressure, and that it was working with the authorities as it investigates. "Some landowners are concerned about how an oil spill might harm their property and water supplies".

Back in April 2016, crew responded to a spill from the Keystone pipeline in Freeman, South Dakota.

"Ultimately, the cleanup responsibility lies with TransCanada, and they'll have to clean it up in compliance with our state regulations", Brian Walsh, an environmental scientist manager at the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources told the Associated Press.

Amherst is about 200 miles north of Sioux Falls, S.D., and about 25 miles from the state's border with North Dakota.

TransCanada has indicated that the pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta, to Cushing, Okla., and to Wood River/Patoka, Ill., is expected to remain shut down. President Trump this year signed a presidential permit allowing the company to build the Keystone XL pipeline, which would transport as much as 830,000 barrels of crude oil a day from Alberta, Canada, to Nebraska, where it would join existing pipelines that feed refineries elsewhere in the United States.

TransCanada said at the time that the leak was the first detected on the pipeline since it began operating, though there had been leaks at pumping stations.

The Keystone XL pipeline got federal US approval in March when President Donald Trump overturned former President Barack Obama's rejection of the project in 2015. The project and its route through Nebraska has been controversial.
