Repairs complete on Shelley pipeline

Repairs have finally been completed on a pipeline that exploded in Shelley about three weeks ago.

With the repairs finished, pipeline operator Enbridge expects to begin the process of slowly returning the pipeline to service within the next few days.

The plan is to slowly increase flow to the 36 inch pipeline until it reaches 80 percent of its normal operating pressure.

Both the damaged pipeline and the nearby 30 inch pipeline will be required to operate at 80 percent efficiency until the National Energy Board can complete a full regulatory review.

According to Enbridge, they will be conducting a comprehensive dig to further highlight the integrity of their system.

In the meantime, FortisBC is still urging residents to preserve as much natural gas as possible.
