BOGOTA--Colombia's 480-mile Cano Limon pipeline has resumed pumping following a rebel attack last week, an official with state oil company Ecopetrol SA said Monday.

The pipeline, which carries some 70,000 bpd from Occidental Petroleum Corp.'s Cano Limon field to the Atlantic port of Covenas, began pumping Friday night, the official said.

The pipeline has been blown up twice this year. Each time it is attacked, Ecopetrol halts pumping, usually for several days, until repair crews can safely enter the area and fix the damages.
