Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP (KMP:US) is operating the CALNEV pipeline after repairing a leak at a pump station near Baker, California, that caused a minor spill.
A pump seal malfunction at a booster station resulted in “very minimal product being released on our property,” Emily Mir Thompson, a company spokeswoman, said in an e-mail. “We have cleaned up the product, made necessary repairs to the seal and returned the line to service. There is no impact to supply.”
The release was less than five gallons, she said.
Kinder’s CALNEV pipeline system transports gasoline, diesel and jet fuel from Los Angeles refineries and marine terminal to Las Vegas, according to the company’s website.
