TransCanada Corporation (TransCanada) has announced that its Keystone pipeline repair and restart plans have been reviewed by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) with no objections, permitting a safe and controlled return to service of the Keystone system.

As part of the reviewed plans, TransCanada will operate the pipeline at a reduced pressure starting on Tuesday 28 November 2017, to ensure a safe and gradual increase in the volume of crude oil moving through the system. The company is communicating plans to its customers and will continue working closely with them as it begin to return to normal operating conditions.

TransCanada will comply with any future PHMSA orders and requirements as a result of this incident to ensure the integrity of the pipeline.

The company appreciates the continued co-operation and support from local officials, emergency response personnel and commissioners in Marshall County, as well as the landowner who has granted permission to access land for assessment, repair and clean-up activities. TransCanada also want to recognise the continued efforts of its crews, contractors and businesses in the community for their around the clock support, which has allowed the company to respond quickly and safely to this event.
