USA: Enbridge Examines Stingray Pipeline after Gas Leak Reported
A helicopter flyover was completed yesterday, and a three-foot diameter patch of bubbles has been spotted on the surface of the water in the vicinity of the Stingray natural gas pipeline.
”The Stingray Pipeline continues to operate under normal operating parameters at this time, in accordance with regulatory standards and guidelines, and we are in contact with regulatory authorities. A dive boat has been dispatched to the location, and we will commence an investigative dive as soon as weather conditions permit,” said Terrance L. McGill, senior vice president of natural gas operations and engineering for Enbridge. “If a leak is confirmed as a result of the diving activities, we will immediately begin repairs. We do not anticipate any potential business interruption to be material.”
Stingray Pipeline transports natural gas and injected condensate from approximately 53 fields in the High Island, West Cameron, East Cameron, Vermillion and Garden Banks Offshore Gulf areas.
