Kinder Morgan Preparing to Resume Service Post-Sandy

November 2012, Vol. 239 No. 11

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. announced Nov. 1 that its New York Harbor terminals, shut down due to Hurricane Sandy and still without electric power, are expected to be ready to begin inbound and outbound petroleum product movements at Carteret, N.J., Perth Amboy, N.J., and Staten Island, N.Y., within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Kinder Morgan’s Mid Atlantic terminals are operational and are moving and receiving products.

“Like others, we experienced flooding, damage and a loss of electricity at our Northeast facilities,” KMP Terminals President Jeff Armstrong said. “Thanks to our pre-storm preparations, and extremely dedicated employees working around the clock following the storm, we have made significant progress in assessing these terminals and preparing to resume service. We will be able to resume operations even if power has not been restored, as we have brought in power generation resources from our operations elsewhere. Additionally, we are working closely with government agencies to restart operations as soon as possible.”
