TransCanada’s suspends oil shipments on Keystone pipeline to deal with leak

CALGARY – TransCanada Corp. has suspended shipments of crude oil along its Keystone pipeline while it repairs and cleans up a small leak at a Kansas pumping station.

The latest spill comes just 2 1/2 weeks after the Calgary-based company experienced a similar problem at a pumping station in North Dakota.

A spokesman for the Calgary-based company (TSX:TRP) says there was a 40-barrel leak at a pump station due to problems with a fitting.

The failure of a different type of fitting caused a leak of about 500 barrels of crude earlier this month in Sargent County, North Dakota

Keystone normally carries between 400,000 and 450,000 barrels per day of Alberta crude to Cushing, Okla.

TransCanada spokesman Terry Cunha says the company doesn’t know yet how long it will take to get Keystone flowing again.

Cunha said TransCanada will be able to meet its commitments to shippers.
