BP repairs leak in Blaine-to-Portland fuel pipeline

BURLINGTON — The pipeline that connects four North Puget Sound oil refineries with Seattle and Portland is operating again after a small leak at Burlington was repaired.

The 400-mile Olympic Pipeline is operated by BP and runs from Blaine to Portland, carrying diesel and gasoline for fuel customers as well as jet fuel for Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Portland International Airport.

BP spokesman Scott Dean says the line was shut down Nov. 5 and resumed full operations Monday. He says the fuel had leaked from a half-inch valve fitting.

The Skagit Valley Herald reported about 60 gallons of mixed fuel spilled. The state Ecology Department ordered a cleanup and repairs.

Dean says it took a while to find the leak because it was initially thought to be residue from a previous spill.
