HOUSTON, July 17 -- Explorer Pipeline, Tulsa, said it will restart a 28-in. section of its 1,400-mile products pipeline early on July 18.

The pipeline has been shut down since July 14 due to a leak north of Huntsville, Tex. (OGJ Online, July 16, 2007).

Tom Jensen, director of operations for Explorer, said the company has "experienced some delays in the repair of the pipeline," which was originally scheduled to come back on line July 17.

Jensen told OGJ the repair delays are not associated with any major disruptions.
