Magellan Midstream Partners reported Friday that it has temporarily closed a portion of its petroleum pipeline system in Houston as a safety precaution due to flooding in the area.
The pipeline runs through Spring Creek near Spring, Texas and provides transportation services for gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel from the Gulf Coast refineries to central, northern, and west Texas distribution terminals.
Affected areas from the temporary closure include areas north of the facility, particularly the Dallas area and other areas in West Texas such as Odessa and El Paso. Alternative routes are being sought while the closure is in effect.
