An Energy Transfer spokesperson said today [Thursday] that an area along the pipeline that was identified as having a problem during an aerial survey is in the process of being evaluated.
Vicki Granado said in the statement “as a part of our ongoing operations of the line, we are continuing to conduct aerial surveys. If there are any issues spotted as a part of this continued monitoring they will be quickly addressed. We are in the process of evaluating a site that was identified in the area.”
The location is approximately one and a half miles east of the location of a massive gas line rupture that occurred on March 3rd.
An aerial survey indicated a possible leak during a hydro-test yesterday [Wednesday], and investigation revealed bubbles over the pipe.
