In connection with its response to a rupture last week on a 30-inch diameter line downstream of Station 40 near Natchitoches, LA (see Daily GPI, Dec. 2), Tennessee said it had received a Corrective Action Order from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) requiring a pressure reduction on Line 2 from Station 32 (Jasper, TX) to the suction side of Station 47 (West Monroe, LA). Tennessee announced a related force majeure event that became effective immediately in the area of Station 40, and said it had complied with the PHMSA order.
