Partial oil deliveries through Illinois on the Keystone Pipeline resumed late Wednesday after a nearly week-long outage as TC Energy Corp. revived the network’s Canadian exports and continued cleanup work.

A brief TC progress report said that after parts of the southbound leg to the Texas coast were shut Dec. 7 following the discovery of a leak, the line re-opened from Alberta to the Illinois refining region area of Wood River and Patoka. Shippers and regulators were briefed on the traffic revival, added the Calgary firm.

No date was given for resuming operations by the Keystone southern leg, which runs from a Nebraska junction near the oil leak in northern Kansas to the Cushing storage and trading hub in Oklahoma, then to the Houston region.
