Report: Enbridge's Texas Eastern gas line explodes, kills 1 in Kentucky

A rupture on the Enbridge Inc.-operated Texas Eastern Transmission LP interstate natural gas pipeline caused a massive explosion in Lincoln County, Ky., early Aug. 1, killing one person and injuring five others, Kentucky's WKYT-TV reported.

According to emergency responders, the explosion resulted in a fire estimated to be 300 feet high. The fire spread and ignited several structures in the area, according to the report. People have been evacuated, but up to seven individuals are unaccounted for, the emergency responders told the news station.

Texas Eastern has shut off the flow of gas through the ruptured pipeline. The Texas Eastern system is made up of 8,835 miles of pipeline running from the Gulf Coast and Texas to New York City and other markets in the Northeast.

Texas Eastern declared a force majeure due to the explosion, saying it is working on restoring the line to full capacity. However, the estimated time of completion for the restoration is "unclear," Texas Eastern said in a notice. "As a result of this outage, north to south capacity through the Danville station will be reduced to 0 Dth/d."

Enbridge is coordinating with first responders to secure the site. "Our first concern is for those impacted by this event and ensuring the safety of the community," the company said in a statement.
