Massive Gas Well Explosion Near Granbury, Texas; Raging Fireball Visible 30 Miles Away
Update: The pipe belongs to Enterprise Products Partners LP. Bloomberg reports: "Enterprise Products Partners LP shut a portion of its 36-inch natural gas pipeline after the line was struck by a fire. The line stretches from Waha in West Texas to the Carthage Hub in Panola, Rick Rainey, a company spokesman said in a telephone interview."
Following up on last week's explosion in Pennsylvania, Fox News is currently tracking a massive gas well explosion near Granbury, Texas. The fireball is so large (and currently blazing as the Fox News video below attest) that it can be seen 30 miles away. 3 have been reported dead, 6 are injured, and 10 are missing. From Arlington Cardinal:
A large explosion at at gas well has caused a large fire. Residents
could feel the ground shake and see flames shooting very high in the
air. The fire can be seen from 30 miles away. The fire is near
Granbury, Texas in Hood County. The fire was reported about 3 p.m. CDT
at 2101 County Road 1120 in Hood County.
This can not be good for recently surging nattie prices.
