CALGARY-TransCanada Corp. said its Keystone pipeline has leaked an estimated 795,000 litres of oil in Marshall County, S.D. just days before Nebraska is set to decide the fate of its Keystone XL pipeline.
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.
TransCanada estimates the pipeline leaked 5,000 barrels of oil, or about 210,000 gallons, before going offline.
The company says that it is providing state and federal regulators "with accurate and confirmed information on an ongoing basis".
