Keystone pipeline leaking more than expected

79 Views
Message 11 of 11

The Keystone pipeline leak earlier this month resulted in significantly more spillage than the company estimated was likely, according to a new report.

 

The incident, which spewed over 200,000 gallons of oil into fields near Amherst, South Dakota, was one of three substantial leaks in the pipeline since operations began, the Reuters report revealed.

 

The others took place in South Dakota in 2016 and North Dakota in 2011, each expelling around 400 barrels of oil.

 

Risk assessments which were submitted to regulators before the start of the project in 2010 estimated that a leak of more than 50 barrels of oil would not occur more than once every seven to 11 years.

 

Where the two South Dakota spills took place, no more than one spill was predicted once every 41 years, according to TransCanada Corp documents.

Sounds like they used Nancy Reagan's psychic when they predicted the amount and frequency of spills.
