Still harrassing pipelines

Post by Fraser921 »

U.S. pipeline regulator orders lower pressure on Keystone pipeline following the December spill (BBG)

PHMSA said on Tuesday that it is requiring TC Energy Company to lower the operational pressure on the Keystone pipeline following the 13 MBbl spill in December
The regulator added that the company’s "operating, maintenance, and/or integrity management programs may be inadequate to address the repetitious pattern of failures related to the original design, manufacture, and construction of Keystone pipeline"
The pipeline, which can transport as much as 640 MBbl/d of heavy Canadian oil to the Gulf Coast, now risks a reduction in supplies just as U.S. refiners ramp up ahead of summer when annual gasoline consumption tends to peak
