Oil deliveries off the Keystone pipeline are set to tumble this month, as fears mounted over a longer-than-expected outage after its operator said Monday that work to remove a damaged section of the pipe would be completed by week’s end.

The 590,000 barrel-a-day conduit carrying crude from Alberta to refineries in the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast ruptured Oct. 29 near the city of Edinburg in North Dakota, spilling an estimated 9,120 barrels of crude. The company initially expected the outage to last 7 to 12 days.
