The company says trucks and crews are operating 24/7 with booms implemented downstream to contain the oil.

TC Energy says oil has not breached the containment area.

The Keystone pipeline suffered the worst leak in its history last week, when approximately 14,000 barrels of oil spilled into a creek in Washington County, Kan.

The Keystone pipeline system is shut down and a restart date has not been set.

The company said it will conduct a full investigation, in co-operation with regulators, into the cause of the spill.
