A natural gas pipeline in the Middle Ground Shoal area of Alaska’s Cook Inlet continues to leak, Operator Hilcorp Alaska LLC said Wednesday. The company, state and federal agencies are still working on a fix. Hilcorp continues to maintain a lowered operating pressure in the line to prevent water intrusion. The reduction in line pressure has reduced the release rate to approximately 229 Mcf/d, the company said. Hilcorp has been conducting air and water quality sampling and is working with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation to implement a more comprehensive plan to monitor fish and wildlife, air and water quality, sound and ice conditions. To date, no significant impacts to wildlife or the environment have been observed, and the release does not pose a threat the general public, the company said. Once conditions allow, repair operations are expected to take several days.
