Exxon Expects to Restart Portion of South Pipe This Week
Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) plans to start its South Line oil pipeline, which runs from Raceland to Anchorage, Louisiana, this week.
The 16-inch line, which is part of Exxon’s Southwest system, will be restarted after the completion of a hydrostatic test, Rachael Moore, a company spokeswoman based in Fairfax, Virginia, said in an e-mail.
A portion of the Southwest system from South Bend to Sunset, Louisiana, was shut indefinitely Oct. 31, according to a bulletin to shippers obtained at the time by Bloomberg.
Exxon shut the pipeline after a special permit application on the segment was rejected by the federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Patricia Errico, an Exxon spokeswoman, said in November.
