Keystone oil pipeline leaks 383,000 gallons in North Dakota

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) TC Energy's Keystone pipeline leaked an estimated 383,000 gallons (1.4 million liters) of oil in northeastern North Dakota, state regulators said Thursday.

Crews on Tuesday shut down the pipeline that carries tar sands oil from Canada through seven states after the leak was discovered, said Karl Rockeman, North Dakota's water quality division director. It remained closed Thursday.

The Calgary, Alberta-based company formerly known as TransCanada said in a statement the leak affected about 22,500 square feet (2090.3 sq. meters) of land near Edinburg, in Walsh County.

The company and regulators said the cause was being investigated

1. Oil leaks seem to have a habit of being wildly underestimated.

3. That's roughly 40 semi tank trucks worth. There is no way in hell the damage was limited

to 22,500 sq. feet. Lying motherfuckers.

5. That seems like one hell of a bunch of oil

to only affect 1/2 acre.

7. according to the article this is the 5th major spill since it opened in 2011

that is a pretty abysmal record. This thing should be shut down for good.
