Colonial Pipeline Could Restart as Early as Sunday

Here is the latest update from Colonial Pipeline about the status of repairs to their infrastructure.

Colonial Pipeline Media Update #5 (September 1 at 5:22 p.m. EST)

Colonial’s Lines 1 and 2 continue operating from Lake Charles east, drawing from available terminal and refinery supplies.

Lines from Houston to Hebert remain down due to the storm and flooding.

Prior to resuming operations from Houston to Hebert, we will need to complete the assessment of our lines, facilities, and right of ways in those areas and make the necessary repairs before restarting the line.

Given the anticipated level of work required to restart these facilities, we continue to project a Sunday restart of our lines and facilities between Houston and Hebert.

This timing is an estimate, and dependent on a number of considerations, including safe access to locations, passable roads and commercial power, and completion of any needed repairs.
