30" Unplanned Lincoln County, KY Outage - UPDATE 4

Notice Text:

Texas Eastern (TE) is providing the following update on its 30 inch pipeline system for the incident on Line 15 between Danville and Tompkinsville compressor stations.

As posted on August 1, 2019, TE has restricted capacity thru its Danville compressor station to zero. At this time TE will continue to restrict to zero through at least Gas Day August 16, 2019 and until further notice.

Furthermore, on August 8, 2019, TE received a corrective action order (CAO) from Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). TE is in the process of developing the work plan to assess Line 10 and 25 between Danville and Tompkinsville and Line 15 between Uniontown and Kosciusko in compliance with the CAO. The assessments include reviewing inspection data, evaluating construction records, performing field investigations, and scheduling additional interior and exterior inspections among other work streams.

TE is working diligently to comply with the requirements identified by PHMSA, and to return Line 10 and 25 to service that were taken out of service as a precautionary safety measure. Prior to returning Line 10 and 25 to service, TE will address all of the site-specific concerns identified by PHMSA and will be undertaking rigorous inspections on Line 10 and 25 in compliance with the CAO. These pipelines will not be returned to service until we satisfy regulatory requirements and it is safe to do so.

At this time there is no return to service timeframe estimated.

The National Transportation Safety Board maintains the incident site and TE is continuing to support their investigation. Due to this, we are unable to provide any additional updates on the investigation or the response.

Please contact your Operations Account Representative if you have any questions.
