The Keystone Pipeline could soon be reopened following the early December leak of nearly 14,000 barrels of oil into a northern Kansas creek.

Canada-based TC Energy says it obtained permission from U.S. regulators to reopen the repaired part of the pipeline that left one of the largest oil spills in many years. The line carries Canadian tar sands oil to the Cushing hub in Oklahoma before it is eventually transported south to the Gulf Coast refineries.
