TransCanada said late Monday it had restarted its Keystone
pipeline at lower delivery rates.
The restart of the 590,000-bpd line comes two days after
originally scheduled. TransCanada on Wednesday idled the line,
which delivers heavy crude oil from Canada to refineries in the
US Midwest, after finding an unspecified "anomaly" in
Keystone will transport oil at reduced pressure for the next
day as the company conducts additional tests, TransCanada
spokesman James Millar said.
Contractual delivery levels will resume in November, Mr.
Millar added. The problem was not a leak, the company said last
"We will be having direct discussions with our customers
regarding the impact this will have on their deliveries to us,"
Mr. Millar said.
