Enbridge Inc. (ENB) closed another oil pipeline after spotting a possible leak in New York. It's the third pipeline Enbridge has closed since July, following leaks in Illinois and Michigan, the Associated Press reported.

Enbridge said a 91-mile pipeline that runs from Ontario, Canada, to New York was closed after about a gallon of petroleum-based product was discovered in a sewer installation project Monday. The company is now working to find the source.

Also on Monday, crews in Illinois removed a 12-foot pipe section at the site of a leak that has hampered imports from Canada to the Midwest. The pipe was found to have a two-inch diameter hole at its bottom. Directly below, a water main that passes perpendicular to the pipe was found to have two holes, the AP reported. The cause of the leak is still unknown.

The pipeline in New York was shut down out of "an abundance of caution," Enbridge spokesman Glenn Herchak said.
