Enbridge’s Platte Pipeline Will Restart Saturday As Missouri Oil Leak Investigation Continues

An unidentified leak near St. Louis, Missouri has shut down Enbridge’s Platte Pipeline, however the company has said that it will restart normal operations on Saturday.

Enbridge is “highly confident” that the source of the leak is not from the Platte Pipeline.

The leak being investigated has also prompted TransCanada to shut its Keystone Pipeline between Steele City, Nebraska and Patoka, Illinois. That pipeline runs parallel to Enbridge’s Platte line.

43 barrels of crude oil was released into the soil, according the Missouri’s Department of Natural Resources.
