Chevron shuts, purges Utah pipline
After two oil spills in the last six months, a federal agency approved Chevron’s plan to purge oil from a troubled pipeline in the Salt Lake City area.
The purge is part of Chevron’s implementation of a federal corrective action order issued after the Dec. 1 spill near the Red Butte Ampititheater. The purge will begin as early as today at 7 a.m. and could last 48 hours.
Chevron hopes it will remove the remaining oil in the line they can complete work required in the corrective active order.
