ETP Shuts Two Philadelphia Pipes After Possible Gasoline Leak

Energy Transfer Partners said it is keeping two Philadelphia refined product pipelines shut down while it investigates discovered gasoline in a creek nearby.

The two pipes, one 8-inch and one 12-inch, help carry refined products from refineries to New York Harbor and Western Pennsylvania.

The shutdowns came as a result of a Friday precaution regarding discovered gasoline in a creek outside Philadelphia. ETP responded on Friday saying that it was still trying to determine whether the leak came from its pipelines.

The source of the leak has yet to be discovered, and ETP has not responded to requests for comments.
