TransCanada Pipeline Spills 21,000 Gallons of Oil in North Dakota

Friends of the Earth

NEW YORK, NEW YORK (Treehugger) - TransCanada has said its Keystone I pipeline spilled 500 barrels (21,000 gallons) of oil in North Dakota on Saturday morning. Friends of the Earth says the incident is the 12th spill from the Keystone I pipeline, which is not even a year old.

FOE describes more about this weekend's spill:

According to eyewitnesses, Saturday's rupture of the Keystone I pipeline sent a six-story high gusher of oil into the air. The spill occurred at a pumping station, but the spray contaminated soil and water in a nearby field before it could be contained.

The latest spill brings attention again to the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, currently (and controversially) under review by the Obama administration.

The XL pipeline would carry 900,000 barrels of tar sands oil a day from Canada to Texas.

The Keystone I pipeline carries 591,000 barrels a day, and concerns—and opposition—are mounting.
