Federal Contractors Converge to Clean Up Keystone Oil Spill

Third rupture to occur along the pipeline in five years.

Federal contractors joined state and private contractors this week to clean up the Keystone Pipeline’s third oil spill in five years. More than 14,000 barrels of crude oil spilled onto the land of Washington, Kansas, on December 7, and the cleanup is expected to take months to complete.

Canadian company TC Energy Corp, the owner of the pipeline, stated, “We are committed to restoring the affected areas to their original condition or better.” Cleanup crews will remain on-site throughout the holidays, though winter weather in the coming weeks will likely delay the process. Kansas State Representative Lisa Moser posted that the company will be compensating 14 landowners for damages due to the cleanup.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For EPA Administrator Michael Regan to seek God’s direction as he heads the agency.
  • For the owner of the pipeline and the federal contractors as they clean up the oil spill.
  • For state and local officials as they seek to ensure the safety of residents and landowners.
