(AP) - U.S. regulators have allowed a Canadian
company to restart its Keystone oil pipeline after completing
repairs and safety tests.
Oil from the 1,300-mile pipeline that extends from Canada to
Cushing, Oklahoma and Illinois could begin flowing as soon as
Sunday under a revised order from the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous
Materials Safety Administration.
The pipeline has been closed since May 29, when workers reported
a 10-barrel leak in Kansas. That followed a leak of 400 barrels of
oil in North Dakota on May 7.
The pipeline is owned by Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. which
is seeking to extend the line to refineries on the Texas Gulf
