TransCanada plans to restart the Keystone pipeline on Saturday, although rainy weather is hampering the company's efforts.
The 2,100-mile pipeline was shut down Wednesday after tests showed possible safety issues in a section between Missouri and Illinois. A spokesman says no leaks have been detected and there should be no hit on supplies or gas prices from the closure.
The pipeline can move about 590,000 barrels of crude a day from Alberta, Canada, to facilities in Illinois and Oklahoma. TransCanada wants to build another pipeline from Alberta to Texas that would pass through Nebraska.
