Gastar Helpfully Provides Update on Williams WV Pipeline Outage

Last Saturday a 12-inch natural gas pipeline owned by Williams Partners in Marshall County, WV ruptured and caught fire, likely due to a landslide (see Williams Pipeline Rupture/Fire in Marshall County, WV). Not long after, one of (perhaps the) driller affected by the pipeline outage, Gastar, announced it had shut in their wells in the area–a necessary precaution to warn investors that certain targets may not be met because of the pipeline outage (see Gastar Shuts-in Marshall County Wells Due to Pipeline Explosion).

We continue to get our best information on the pipeline outage from…Gastar! We haven’t spotted a single public statement from Williams about the outage (Williams PR department, get on the ball!). Yesterday Gastar said most of their gas is flowing again, through a different Williams pipeline. Gastar also says Williams told them the ruptured/down pipeline should be repaired and operating again in “approximately three weeks.” Thanks Gastar, for keeping us up to date on the Williams pipeline…
