(Reuters) - Enbridge Inc said on Tuesday it restarted the Line 14, that leaked more than 1,000 barrels of crude onto a Wisconsin field.

The 318,000 barrel-per-day pipeline was restarted after the approval from the Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration on Monday.

On July 27, Enbridge shut down the line, that mainly transports light crude oil to Chicago area refineries, to replace part of a pipeline after the leak.
