NEW YORK (Reuters) - Energy Transfer Partners LP will keep two Philadelphia area pipelines shut for at least a week, according to a source familiar with operations of the lines that help carry refined products from the region’s refineries to the New York Harbor and Western Pennsylvania.
The two lines, 8-inch and 12-inch in size, were shut on Friday as a precaution after gasoline was discovered in a creek outside of Philadelphia. ETP said on Friday it was still trying to determine whether the leak came from its pipelines, and did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Monday.
The source of the leak has not been identified, said Nils Hagen-Frederiksen, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, which said it is investigating.
