Shell's Ho-Ho pipeline still shut after leak

|By:, SA News Editor

Royal Dutch Shell's (RDS.A, RDS.B) Ho-Ho pipeline in Texas remains closed for a fifth day after to a reported leak.

The pipeline connecting Houston and Hourma, La., has been shut since Thursday when construction crew members accidentally punctured the pipeline during work near Port Neches, Texas, ~100 miles east of Houston.

Shell also had closed the pipeline earlier this year, slightly more than a month after reversing the pipeline's flow and beginning commercial service.
