The fiery rupture of a natural gas pipeline that lit up the early-morning sky in Missouri on Sunday will limit capacity of the Panhandle Eastern pipeline while repairs are being done, Energy Transfer LP said in a notice.

Nominations to the main-line conduit will be held to 1.125 million British Thermal Units per day, according to the notice. The rupture occurred north of Mexico, Missouri, about 120 miles (193 km) from St. Louis. It didn’t cause serious injuries, but did interrupt power to several homes, the Audrain County Sheriff’s Office noted in a Facebook post.
