TransCanada pipeline leaks 210000 gallons of oil near SD, ND border

Crews cleaning up Keystone Pipeline leak in Marshall County

A TransCanada crew shut down the pipeline at 6 a.m. Thursday morning after detecting an oil leak along the line, the company said.

TransCanada shut down part of its Keystone pipeline after an oil leak of about 5,000 barrels Thursday in Marshall County, South Dakota. The cause was being investigated. The pipeline is not yet ten years old - and has leaked dozens of times, spilling hundreds of thousands of gallons along its route. In addition, Reuters reports that a portion of the pipeline running from Alberta to Oklahoma and IL has been closed until further notice, yet the pipeline's southern leg remains unaffected and continues to operate.

"Ultimately, the cleanup responsibility lies with TransCanada, and they'll have to clean it up in compliance with our state regulations", Walsh said. 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.

Korea says S. Korea-US drills could lead to war
Trump, who is on the final leg of his crucial Asia tour, made North Korea a top priority in his 12-day-long trip. The Reagan - homeported in Japan - joined the other two carriers, which are based in the Western United States.

President Donald Trump issued a federal permit for the project in March. The project has received needed approvals in states between Alberta, Canada, and Nebraska.

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. Nebraska regulators plan to announce their decision next week.
