"Line 2 has resumed operation from Pasadena and Houston," the company said in a notice to shippers.

Colonial shut down pumping from all Texas locations on its system in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Smaller volumes of products on Line 2 and the gasoline-carrying Line 1 were flowing last week from Lake Charles, Louisiana, and points further east.

Colonial is hoping to restart gasoline flows from Houston on Line 1 Tuesday.

The pipeline has previously been targeting a Sunday restart of the Texas potion of Lines 1 and 2.

Half of the 26 refineries that connect to the Colonial system are located between Houston and Lake Charles, which suffered catastrophic flooding during Harvey.

The Colonial system runs from Houston to Linden, New Jersey, and supplies about 60% of the incoming supply of gasoline into the Atlantic Coast. Colonial has the ability to ship 1.37 million b/d of gasoline on its Line 1 and 1.16 million b/d of middle distillates on Line 2.
