- In August, Colonial announced plans to discontinue service on Line 25, which delivers gasoline and ULSD to the Roanoke, VA., market from Colonial’s main pipelines at Mitchell Junction (Columbia, VA).
- Service will continue until approximately September 2018, at which point the line will cease to operate.
- Colonial made this announcement more than a year in advance to allow its customers time to decide on alternative methods of supplying Roanoke and surrounding markets.
- Service on Line 25 will be discontinued due to concerns regarding the condition of the pipeline’s long-term viability.
- Colonial is committed to safe operations that protect the safety of the public and the environment.
- Since March 2017, the line has been running at reduced flow rates and will continue to do so until decommissioning is complete.
- Colonial continues to inspect and perform maintenance on Line 25.
- By way of background, Line 25 is approximately 80 miles in length. For the first seven months of this year (January-July), the line transported approximately 7 million barrels of refined products.
