Latest Update on Colonial Pipeline System Disruption

Atlanta, GA... Colonial Pipeline continues to make forward progress in our around-the-clock efforts to return our system to service, with additional laterals operating manually to deliver existing inventories to markets along the pipeline. Markets experiencing supply constraints and/​or not serviced by other fuel delivery systems are being prioritized. We are collaborating with the Department of Energy (DOE) to evaluate market conditions to support this prioritization.

Since our pipeline system was taken offline, working with our shippers, Colonial has delivered approximately 967,000 barrels (~41 million gallons) to various delivery points along our system. This includes delivery into the following markets: Atlanta, Ga., Belton and Spartanburg, S.C., Charlotte and Greensboro, N.C., Baltimore, Md., and Woodbury and Linden N.J.

Additionally, in preparation for our system restart, we have taken delivery of an additional 2 million barrels (~84 million gallons) from refineries for deployment upon restart.

Consistent with our safety policies and regulatory requirements, Colonial has increased aerial patrols of our pipeline right of way and deployed more than 50 personnel to walk and drive ~ 5,000 miles of pipeline each day.

Actions taken by the Federal Government to issue a temporary hours of service exemption for motor carriers and drivers transporting refined products across Colonial’s footprint and actions taken by several Governors to lift weight restrictions on tanker trucks should help alleviate local supply disruptions. This is in addition to the Reid Vapor Pressure wavier issued today by the U.S. EPA that will also help alleviate supply constraints in several states serviced by our system. We would like to thank the White House for their leadership and collaboration in resolving this matter as well as the DOE, PHMSA, FERC and other federal agencies for their ongoing support.

Our primary focus remains the safe and efficient restoration of service to our pipeline system, while minimizing disruption to our customers and all those who rely on Colonial Pipeline. We will continue to provide updates as restoration efforts progress.

What a MESS Biden has made
Posted on: 2021-05-12 12:12:35   By: Anonymous

I'm my goodness, I've been reading about this gas shortage and how bad it's already become. Missiles flying in the Middle East. 20 different Governor's asking Biden to own up and fix this border crisis. Harris hasn't talked once about it and hasn't even visited the border and talked to anyone down there.
My goodness, these clowns running our Nation are disgustingly out of touch with reality.
Hearing from the mainstream media about how bad Trump was, well I don't know about you, but it seems he was the best thing to happen to America and her people in a long time.
I think we have all been Hoodwinked by Biden and the left owned Media. This administration is an absolute DISASTER with no end in site.
I feel like an idiot for voting for him, I did know though that Kamala Harris was a bad pick. The democrats picked her only because she was Black. If only they picked another Woman who didn't use her body to get ahead. She put women back 20 years, lying on her back like that.

    You're spot on, except for the fact that Kamala isn't black.

      How About Investing In Security?
      Posted on: 2021-05-12 19:21:44   By: Anonymous
      Typical cheap corporation not investing in cyber security .
      So many examples, the corps don't do what they should to protect us- profits over us.
      This is the face of ignorance- greed.
      trump defunded, fired the NSA cyber security unit.
      This is the ignorance , greed trump exemplifies. F the people, why some believe this is good is an example of cultbots- no thought needed. Sad
