TransCanada Pipeline Resumes Production After Leak


A TransCanada Corp. pipeline resumed operations after a week long shutdown, according to the company. The pipeline was temporarily closed when a leak was discovered in South Dakota.

The leak is said to have spilled nearly 400 barrels of oil. The company plans to use aerial patrols and visual inspections to check the pipeline’s progress.

TransCanada reported it would start operation of the pipeline with less pressure in order to make sure the repairs hold.

The pipeline spans more than 3,000 miles long from Alberta, Canada to Port Arthur, Texas. TransCanada Corp. uses the pipeline to carry light and heavy crude oil.
