TC Energy has reduced operating rates on a segment of the Keystone pipeline running from Canada’s oil sands to America’s largest crude hub by about 15% following a disruption to power supplies. 

The rate cut impacts the section stretching from Hardisty, Canada, to Cushing, Oklahoma, according to people familiar with the matter. Clients that receive crude on the system’s Marketlink segment, which runs from Cushing to Texas’s Gulf Coast haven’t experienced any disruptions to deliveries.
