Kazakh natural gas pipeline ruptures

Emergency officials in Kazakhstan say two blasts ruptured a pipeline carrying natural gas to neighboring Russia, forcing a suspension of deliveries through the route. No casualties have been reported.

The Emergency Ministry said in a statement that the explosion took place early Wednesday and caused a fire to break out.

The statement said the explosion was near Sai-Utes, 125 miles (200 kilometers) east of the Caspian Sea coast.

The pipeline is operated by Intergas Central Asia, a subsidiary of state-owned gas transportation company KazTransGas.

It was unclear what effect the blast would have on overall deliveries to Russia.
