NEW YORK (Reuters) - Energy Transfer Partners LP has found that its 12-inch, Philadelphia-area pipeline was the source of a gasoline leak discovered last month in a nearby creek, the company told Reuters on Tuesday.
ETP on June 22 shut the 12-inch pipeline, in addition to an eight-inch pipeline in the area, as a precaution. The lines help carry refined products from the region’s refineries to New York Harbor and Western Pennsylvania.
The company reopened the eight-inch line on June 25, but the larger line remained shut as the company investigated.
ETP has since replaced a section of the 12-inch pipeline and returned the line to service, the company said on Tuesday.
