According to a release, a drop in pressure was detected and the estimated volume of the leak is 5,000 barrels. TransCanada says on its website that the company has safely transported more than 1.5 billion barrels of oil, or about 63 billion gallons, through the system since operations began in 2010.

"Ultimately, the cleanup responsibility lies with TransCanada, and they'll have to clean it up in compliance with our state regulations", Brian Walsh, an environmental scientist manager at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, told the station.

The company said its crews shut down the Keystone pipeline system early this morning between Hardisty, Alta.to Cushing, Okla., and a line to Patoka, Ill. and that the line is expected to remain shut while it responds to the spill. It did not offer a time estimate.

The leak was in the Keystone Pipeline located in an agricultural area in Marshall County.

Keystone XL, if built, would cut diagonally through South Dakota. Federal regulators said an "anomaly" on a weld on the pipeline was to blame.

The company said the spill occurred on private land near Amherst and Britton, S.D., which about 35 miles northeast of Aberdeen and only about 20 miles south of the North Dakota border. The pipeline is not yet ten years old - and has leaked dozens of times, spilling hundreds of thousands of gallons along its route.

In March, President Donald Trump's administration officially issued a permit that approved construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

This does not affect the Marketlink pipeline system, which uses the facilities of the southern leg of the Keystone system from Cushing to the Gulf Coast. The PSC will announce its long-awaited decision on the application Monday.
