Transportation Notes

Ruby Pipeline flows have been cut to zero until further notice as Ruby declared a force majeure after experiencing a fire and some damage Saturday in its block valve 6 yard in a remote area of southeastern Cache County, UT. A segment of its pipeline around the block valve 6 was shut in and isolated to allow damage assessment and repairs. Ruby said Sunday it is unable to receive or deliver gas. Based on an inspection of the fire damage, which occurred at a gas line to auxiliary equipment, the damage will require more repairs to the valve, valve operator and auxiliary equipment than initially thought, the pipeline added. A road to the snow-covered site has been plowed and repair crews are on site.

Reversing the 22-inch diameter pipeline would enable more than 300,000 b/d of crude to be distributed across the Gulf Coast region, the company said.
