Texas Gas Pipeline Explosion Under Investigation

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 19-Dec-2012

The Texas Railroad Commission (TRC) is investigating the December 5th gas pipeline explosion that occurred in Ector County, in close proximity to the DCP Midstream natural gas plant. The TRC Pipeline Safety Division will attempt to determine exactly what caused the explosion. Although there were no casualties, the explosion and fire caused local residents to flee and burned several buildings to the ground.

Power was cut while responders fought the fire, but it was restored the next day after 12 to 15 utility poles were replaced. In a public statement, the TRC said: "A cause has not been determined at this time for the rupture on a 90-mile long, 16-inch transmission line operated by West Texas Gas." The official investigation is expected to be completed in 90 days, at which time an official report will be released.
