Officials at TransCanada say they are unsure why the Keystone pipeline leaked about 210,000 gallons of oil in South Dakota on Thursday. The company temporarily shut down the pipeline as it responds to the leak. TransCanada is also awaiting a decision today about whether another permission for controversial Keystone XL will be granted in Nebraska.
