Energy Transfer natural gas pipeline explodes in Missouri

A 30-inch natural gas pipeline has ruptured in a rural area in western Missouri causing an explosion and fire that could be seen for miles, but no injuries have been reported.

Panhandle Energy, the Energy Transfer (ETE, ETP) subsidiary that operates the pipeline, rerouted the natural gas flow so that service was not interrupted; the Panhandle Eastern pipeline system includes some 6,500 miles of pipeline with a delivery capacity of 2.8B cf/day.

    Ever since irresponsible advisors have brought up the "lack of maintenance" issue with respect to midstren MLP"s everyone is hyper-sensentive to the issue. I will guarantee that no management on this planet will report that the reason for the explosion was "lack of maintenance". LOL.

    The last thing these operators want is pipeline ruptures. Accidents have two negative effects. One effect is loss of product transfer (e.g. loss of profit) and the other is bad publicity!
    Let's wait for the investigation. Often the cause is an outside influence such as mechanical damage by a third party.
