Kinder Morgan Restarts Gas Pipeline After Leak at Watson Station in California - CNN

(Reuters) — Energy infrastructure company Kinder Morgan has resumed operations after a leak was detected this week in a California gasoline pipeline that supplies unleaded and diesel fuel to storage facilities in southern Nevada, CNN reported on Saturday.

The report, citing a statement from a Kinder Morgan spokeswoman, said that the restart activities are complete for Watson Station's associated SFPP West and CalNev pipelines and they resumed operations.

Earlier in the week, Kinder Morgan Energy Partners had disclosed a gasoline spill at the U.S. pipeline operator's Watson Station located in Long Beach, California, and said that it shut down all lines pumping in and out of the area.

The company expects the pipelines to resume operations this afternoon and begin delivering fuel to their respective market areas later on Saturday, the report added citing the spokesperson.

Kinder Morgan did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

"The pipeline leak has been located, and systems are now coming back online," Nye County, Nevada, tweeted on Saturday.

"Fuel should be flowing within the next few hours,"

Kinder Morgan had earlier reported that there were no injuries or fire reported as a result of the gasoline spill.
