After two months of disruption, the Trans Mountain pipeline has returned to normal operating pressure, according to a weekend update from the pipeline's operator. The operator previously shut the pipeline down on Nov. 14 because of heavy rainfall and flooding in British Columbia.

This past Saturday, following a "comprehensive engineering assessment," the operator cheered the resumption of normal pressure. (This does not necessarily mean normal capacity -- particularly because Trans Mountain already told shippers that it was reducing capacity for all of January -- but it sets the stage for normal operations shortly.)
