Magellan Pipeline ruptures

Representatives of Magellan Midstream Partners Bruce Heine have confirmed that a pipeline ruptured on December 11th when a landowner’s bulldozer struck the pipeline in a cornfield, leaking 252,000-gallons of petroleum. Heine said Magellan’s control room operators in Oklahoma recognized a pressure reduction in the area and shut the line down. There was no immediate risk of damage and no homes or businesses were evacuated. Crews spent Sunday cleaning up the area and repairing the pipeline.
