  • Crews cleaning up Keystone Pipeline leak in Marshall County

The company said its crews shut down the Keystone pipeline system early this morning between Hardisty, Alta.to Cushing, Okla., and a line to Patoka, Ill. and that the line is expected to remain shut while it responds to the spill.

The leak was detected after a drop in pressure in the operating system.

For one thing, the HBO series started as a very faithful adaptation with a built-in audience of loyal book fans. Peter Jackson's LOTR movie trilogy is 558 minutes (!) altogether, and that's not counting the extended version.

The Sierra Club is urging Nebraska regulators to reject the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline after TransCanada Corp.'s existing Keystone pipeline leaked an estimated 210,000 gallons of oil in South Dakota.

While details are still emerging around this spill, we know it occurred in Marshall County on South Dakota's northern border.

South Korea was keeping its "full combat readiness against North Korea's possibility provocations", its military said Monday. The post came in response to the country's foreign ministry calling Trump "an old lunatic" over his speech in South Korea.

In Canada, TransCanada reported 21 incidents during the first year of operation, mainly small quantities of oil being spilled near pump stations and later cleaned up. It already had been approved by most of the states along the route. The substance flowing through the Keystone pipeline is known as diluted bitumen, or "dilbit", because the bitumen (the crude oil itself) is so thick and sticky it must be diluted in order to effectively flow through the system. The company said it's working with state regulators and the Pipelines and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to assess the situation.

TransCanada is seeking approval from the Nebraska Public Service Commission for the final section of a second pipeline project, the Keystone XL.

The Keystone XL pipeline got federal US approval in March when President Donald Trump overturned former President Barack Obama's rejection of the project in 2015. Based on the safety record of Keystone I, Nebraska's PSC should carefully consider the impacts of TransCanada's much larger Keystone XL pipeline as it weighs its decision on Monday.
