The Lead

A portion of a TransCanada natural gas pipeline exploded early Thursday in Moundsville, West Virginia.

Fortunately, no employees were at the site along the Columbia Gas Transmission pipeline when the blast went off, and no homes were directly impacted by the fires. The incident could potentially impact 1.3 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day, enough to influence over five million U.S. homes. TransCanada didn’t know when the pipeline would return to service but declared force majeure — a common clause in a contract that frees parties from their obligations when an unforeseen incident prevents a party from fulfilling its contractual requirements. Several entities are investigating the explosion including TransCanada, the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, and the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, Reuters reports.
