Dare I say that it is about time?
U.S. regulators have allowed a Canadian company to restart its Keystone oil pipeline after completing repairs and safety tests.
The pipeline was shut down a week ago because 10 barrels of oil leaked in Kansas (after a 400 bbl leak in North Dakota one month ago). 400 gallons of crude oil was enough to shut down the pipeline which normally carries 400,000 bbls per day. That is, 1/40,000th of a day’s throughput.
I probably spilled that much crude through ignorance and lack of skill back when I was well-tending and cleaning out old wells. Overreact much?
