Oil is flowing once again through the Keystone pipeline after a leak in South Dakota caused a shutdown that lasted more than a week.
TransCanada says in a news release that the cross-border line was restarted Sunday following permission that was granted by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration in the U.S.
The company says the line will operate at a reduced pressure as part of the plan that was approved to return it to service.
The leak, which was reported April 2, let over 63,000 litres of oil seep into a South Dakota field in Hutchinson County.
The company has said on-site specialists and regulators have not observed any significant environmental impact.
It says cleanup and land restoration has already started and will continue over the coming days.
