“Colonial Pipeline initiated the restart of pipeline operations today at approximately 5 p.m. ET” read a statement from the company on their website Wednesday afternoon.
“Following this restart, it will take several days for the product delivery supply chain to return to normal. Some markets served by Colonial Pipeline may experience, or continue to experience, intermittent service interruptions during the start-up period. Colonial will move as much gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel as is safely possible and will continue to do so until markets return to normal.”
Biden’s Energy Secretary also shared the news on her twitter feed. “We just got off the phone with #ColonialPipeline CEO. They are restarting pipeline operations today at ~5pm. More soon.”
