Keystone Pipeline Spill Affecting Gas Prices Over Thanksgiving Holiday

Keystone Pipeline Spill Affecting Gas Prices Over Thanksgiving Holiday

On Tuesday, TransCanada vice president Erik Tatarchuck told the Marshall County Commissioners he believes the leak was "sudden and immediate" not a slow and steady one, which leads him to conclude it's unlikely oil leaked long enough to soak into the ground.

Markets will be focused on US economic news today.

"The PUC needs to determine whether any of the permit conditions for this pipeline were violated".

Oil prices jumped two percent on Wednesday, the highest since July 2015. Last week's spill was the third pipeline leak to have occurred in South Dakota within the a year ago, according to a spill database run by the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The spill is the third to take place along the Keystone route in less than 10 years, a concern to state regulators since the pipeline's lifespan is up to 100 years. A more comprehensive analysis could take several months.

South Dakota regulators are anxious about the leak since it is the third to occur in a decade, which is too many given the pipeline's lifespan is 100 years.

The company says there are roughly 170 people on-site working on cleanup and remediation.

While Hanson, who served on the commission in 2008 when TransCanada's permit for construction was approved, acknowledged the commission had known a leak was bound to happen, he said the multiple leaks were "very disturbing".

The company says that more than 16,000 gallons of oil had been removed as of Tuesday.
