TransCanada has resumed sending oil through the Keystone Pipeline.
 
The pipeline was shut down last week after it sprung a leak spilling roughly 17,000 gallons of crude oil in South Dakota. The pipeline came back online Sunday, but with a reduced pressure. The company says there was no significant environmental impact or threat to public safety following the spill. The pipeline passes through the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri en route to refineries in Illinois and Oklahoma.
 
It is not the same pipeline as the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that President Obama rejected last November that would have passed through Nebraska.
