Arctic Cold Cuts U.S. Fuel Supply as Processing Freezes

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP, Exxon Mobil Corp. and others are working to return normal operations to pipelines, terminals and refineries that were battered by record cold weather yesterday.

A warm-up will push eastern U.S. temperatures to seasonal readings over the next five days and then higher from Jan. 13 through Jan. 17, according to Matt Rogers, president of Commodity Weather Group LLC in Bethesda, Maryland. Yesterday was the coldest day of the 21st century in the contiguous U.S., based on natural gas-weighted heating-degree days.
