Remember that huge Keystone pipeline spill in South Dakota last year? Well, it turns out it was about twice as big as folks originally thought.
On Monday, the Keystone XL Pipeline took one big leap toward becoming a reality—less than a week after developer TransCanada discovered a massive leak in its nearby Keystone Pipeline, which spewed at least 210,000 gallons of crude oil onto South Dakota agricultural lands.
On Thursday morning, the Keystone Pipeline spilled about 5,000 barrels, or 210,000 gallons, of crude oil in Amherst, South Dakota. The pipeline has been shut down as operator TransCanada investigates the incident.
