BENDENA, Kansas, June 2 (Reuters) - TransCanada Corp (TRP.TO) said the flow of crude oil through the Keystone pipeline may not resume until next week.

"We do not have any firm timeline as to when re-start will occur," said TransCanada spokesman James Millar in a statement issued late Wednesday. "The next few days may mean next week, we do not know at this point."

Since a leak at a northeast Kansas pumping station shut the 591,000 barrel per day (bpd) pipeline on Sunday, TransCanada has said the pipeline was expected to resume operation within a few days. (Reporting by Erwin Seba)
