returns to normal

Colonial Pipeline, Alpharetta GA, has achieved the same flow-rates for gasoline deliveries as the pipeline managed before Hurricanes Gustav and Ike hit the Gulf Coast refining region earlier this month.
The company said that after each of the hurricanes, Colonialís pipeline quickly returned to full capability. However, supply shortages nonetheless occurred as a result of damage and shutdowns suffered by Louisiana and Texas oil refineries impacted by the hurricanes.
The refinery reduced output has resulted in market shortages and gas lines in many markets served by pipeline systems in the Southeast. Colonial is making every effort to support its shippers as they try to restore market stability, the company said.
The Colonial Pipeline system begins in Houston TX and crosses the South and East before terminating at the New York harbor.
