TransCanada's (TRP) controversial Keystone Pipeline will start back up this week.
The company announced on Monday that repair and restart plans of the Keystone Pipeline has been reviewed by both the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) with "no objections" clearing the way for its controlled return to service.
TransCanada will renew operations of the pipeline starting on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, to "ensure a safe and gradual increase in the volume of crude oil moving through the system," the company said.
"We appreciate the continued cooperation 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 said. "We also want to recognize the continued efforts of our crews, contractors, and businesses in the community for their around-the-clock support, which has allowed us to respond quickly and safely to this event."
The announcement follows earlier reports from Monday saying that the pipeline's renewal was up in the air following a spill.
