TC Energy Corporation (TSX:TRP) (NYSE:TRP) (TC Energy) announced Sunday that its Keystone pipeline has returned to service following the approval of its repair and restart plan by the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA).
As part of the restart plan, TC Energy will operate the pipeline at a reduced pressure with a gradual increase in the volume of crude oil moving through the system. They are communicating plans to their customers and will continue working closely with them as we begin to return to normal operating conditions.
We appreciate the cooperation and support from local officials, emergency response personnel and commissioners in Walsh County, as well as the landowner who has granted permission to access land for assessment, repair and clean-up activities. They also want to recognize the continued efforts of their crews, contractors, and businesses in the community for their around-the-clock support, which has allowed them to respond quickly and safely to this event.
They continue to work closely with PHMSA and the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality as they investigate the cause of the incident and analyze the impacted segment of removed pipe. For more information on their response, visit www.tcenergy.com/incident/edinburg-incident
