Keystone pipeline spills 210,000 gallons of oil on eve of permitting decision for TransCanada

Keystone pipeline spills 210,000 gallons of oil on eve of permitting decision for TransCanada | 16 Nov 2017 | The Keystone pipeline running from Canada across the Great Plains leaked Thursday morning, spilling about 5,000 barrels of oil -- or 210,000 gallons -- southeast of a small town in northeast South Dakota. The spill comes on the eve of a crucial decision by the Public Service Commission in Nebraska over whether to grant a permit for a new, long-delayed sister pipeline called Keystone XL, which has been mired in controversy for several years. Both are owned by Calgary-based TransCanada. The spill on the first Keystone pipeline is the latest in a series of incidents that critics of the new pipeline say shows that TransCanada should not receive another permit.
