Colonial Pipeline resumes operations in Texas after Hurrican Harvey

The U.S. Gulf Coast is recovering slowly from the damage done by Hurricane Harvey. On Monday, a key segment of the American fuel system will restart operations after devastating rains caused heavy damage to infrastructures in all of Texas.

Due to the storm, almost a quarter of U.S. refining capacity had to be shut down according to officials, which led to a rise in fuel prices in the country.

The storm hit the U.S. on August 25. It was the most powerful hurricane in more than 50 years. Hurricane Harvey killed an estimated 50 people and inflicted serious damage to some 200,000 homes leaving a path of destruction stretching for roughly 500 kilometers.

Colonial's 5,500-mile pipeline system begins in Houston, Texas and ends in Linden, New Jersey, serving seven airports and other facilities. The pipeline hauls more than 3 million barrels per day of refined products including gasoline, diesel and jet fuel from the Gulf Coast refining hub to the populous U.S. Northeast.
