Enbridge Inc said on Monday that its crude oil pipeline 6A would run at 80 percent of its 670,000 barrel-per-day capacity while maintenance on parts of the line is under way, said a company spokesman.

The key crude line transporting Canadian oil to refineries in the U.S. Midwest was shut down on Friday as the company put a sleeve around a section of pipeline.

A company spokesman said rates were voluntarily reduced to just under 500,000 bpd as the company works to repair potential points of weakness along the line.

The line was restarted on Saturday evening.
