  • Crews cleaning up Keystone Pipeline leak in Marshall County

TransCanada issued a statement Thursday afternoon after the Keystone Pipeline leaked approximately 210,000 gallons in South Dakota.

The leak occurred just a few days before the Nebraska Public Service Commission is scheduled to make a November 20 announcement of its decision on whether to approve a permit to allow construction of the controversial long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline.

Crews shut down the pipeline about 6 a.m., according to the company's website, after a drop in pressure was detected in its operating system resulting from an oil leak that is under investigation.

The conduit is not the controversial and long-delayed Keystone XL Pipeline which TransCanada is still shepherding through the approval process.

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

Crews shut down the pipeline Thursday morning and officials are investigating the cause of the leak. The pipeline is not yet ten years old - and has leaked dozens of times, spilling hundreds of thousands of gallons along its route. It would carry tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

A protest sign sits in the proposed path of the Keystone XL pipeline, in Silver Creek, Neb. In 2010, the first year it was in use, there were 35 Keystone leaks in the U.S. and Canada.

The Keystone XL is proposed to cut through the Nebraska Sandhills and connect with the existing Keystone Pipeline on the southern edge of the state. Based on the safety record of Keystone I, Nebraska's PSC should carefully consider the impacts of TransCanada's much larger Keystone XL pipeline as it weighs its decision on Monday.
