BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) The Keystone pipeline has been restarted nearly two weeks after it leaked an estimated 383,000 gallons of oil in North Dakota. TC Energy says the pipeline returned to service Sunday after approval of a repair and restart plan by the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
The agency ordered the company last week to keep the pipeline shut down until corrective action was taken, including sending an affected portion of the pipe to an independent laboratory for testing.
State regulators say the leak affected about 22,500 square feet of land near Edinburg.
