Holly Energy Pipeline Spill due to Corrosion, NRC Filing Shows

Gasoline spilled from a pipeline operated by Holly Energy Partners, L.P. (HEP) in Texas, according to a filing with the National Response Center.

Five barrels of gasoline leaked from the pipeline due to “external corrosion” on Dec. 2, it said.

U.S. companies must notify the response center if they release hazardous substances in excess of reportable quantities according to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, commonly known as Superfund. Bloomberg News couldn’t immediately verify that the information in the NRC filing was accurate.
