Longhorn Pipeline stops fuel flow due to fire

NEW YORK, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Longhorn Pipeline said on Wednesday it had stopped shipping oil products from its Galena Park, Texas terminal because of a fire earlier at Kinder Morgan’s KMP.N oil products terminal in Pasadena, Texas.

“We have ceased pumping from Galena Park, which is our point of origin,” said Amber Pappas, a spokeswoman for the pipeline.

The 694 mile (1,117-km) common carrier pipeline can carry 72,000 barrels per day of different grades of gasoline and diesel from the Gulf Coast refineries to El Paso, Texas where other carriers offload.

Pappas said that she had no information as to when they would be able to restore normal operations. (Reporting by Janet McGurty; Editing by Marguerita Choy)
