Wow brand new pipeline and the second leak all ready in North Dakota this time in a wetland. Interesting how they can be having problems so quick. I find it hard to believe that the Canadian tar sands are worth the effort given the price of crude and the cost to produce tar sand oil. I think I read one time it takes a close to a 100 cubic yards to process one barrel of oil. Just heard on the news that Iraq hit a new oil field worth billions of barrels. the oil market is as crazy as the fur market, only difference is everyone wants oil.

Intentional sabotage by the environmentalists seems like a likely cause of the leak. They have little morals when it comes to pushing their world domination agenda.

I’ve spent a decade in the oil and gas industry and to me it is very surprising that there has been one leak, let alone two. The precautions we take to ensure things underground are extensive and very nearly 100% foolproof. Every weld must pass an x-ray inspection, is primed and coated with durable corrosion preventing enamel, then is gone over with an instrument that detects thin spots in the coating and recoated in those spots. Then they’re set on a bed of sand to prevent rocks from rubbing through the pipe over time, any 90s or risers are wrapped with a half inch thick rubber mat to prevent chips and rubbing, it’s buried with sand a foot deep and the rest is filled with fill dirt.

So to me, knowing that I have never seen a pipeline leak except the ones that have been in the ground since Christ was a child, it seems like sabotage or something equally as nefarious.

There will be many more leaks throughout its lifetime and when the company is done with it it they will disband and leave it where it rests. Happens time after time and that pipeline with with whatever oil is left in it will slowly melt into the ground over the next couple hundred years, unless local action is taken to remove it.

The brand new pipeline is the keystone xl, this one is over a decade old. This happened about 20 miles from my house and it covered half an acre. Latest news was half of the oil had already been recovered. It’s in a “wetland” only if you consider a low spot in a crop field a wetland. It has caused virtually no harm to anyone or any animal. It’s a nonstory. Keep those pipes flowing.

The next distraction from the Democrats getting their butt handed to them on this phony impeachment nonsense. Oh, and Epstein didn't kill himself.

This is in my back yard the non stop traffic of non residents dose not go un noticed, this pipeline brought many good top paying jobs in the area when it was installed, some of the comments seem not like pipelines just ask yourself if you would rather have another train derailment with oil cars the next time it could happen in a city the last one in ND the fire could be seen for miles

Comes down to what is more economical for everyone. Unless you a liberal? Then economics and logic don't mater. Climate change is your religion and the earth is your god.

Got windmills piping up all over here. Drives me absolutely nuts! Ruins the view both in day and at night. Carbon footprint to make and dispose of them is off the charts, inefficient, loud, kills birds, and limits what you can do with land around them.

Always gonna be someone who is against it for personal reasons! No matter what your doing. "Can't make em all happy"

Leaks can happen but they are rare with all the testing they go though, if the pipe is in the ground, which I believe it is, as far as sabotage at the point of welding it would take several people to accomplish from the welder to the lift operators that put it in the ground not saying it is impossible but would be very difficult.
