Kinder Morgan to restart Trans Mountain Pipeline

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 26
-- Kinder Morgan Canada planned to restart its Trans Mountain Pipeline near Edmonton, Alta., by late Apr. 26 following a small, localized release of crude oil, the company reported. Repairs were under way early Apr. 26.

“During an overnight inspection of the pipe, no free oil was visible during excavation, confirming the small, localized impact of the release,” the company said. The pipeline was shut down on Apr. 22 after a farmer reported finding oil in a field. No additional details were immediately available.

“We have been working cooperatively with all involved in responding to and impacted by this response,” Kinder Morgan said in a news release. “Environmental mitigation measures are in place…. Access to the pipeline was initially slowed by seasonally high water and wet soil.”

The 1,150-km Trans Mountain Pipeline transports crude oil and refined products from Edmonton to the US.
